Events | Civil War at Graeme Park 9/16

Quakers - Farmers - and the Civil War

Although Graeme Park is most known as a historic colonial site, the Penrose family, owners of Graeme Park from 1801 to 1920, couldn’t help but be drawn into the Civil War. Family patriarch, Samuel Penrose, was a Quaker as were many of his descendants, but that didn’t stop tragedy from touching the family during the war. Join us today as we explore the struggle Pennsylvania’s Quaker families faced during the Civil War and the impact the war had on farms like Graeme Park. Along the way, meet those who lived and worked at Graeme Park during the Civil War. Presentation at 2:00 p.m. Tours of the Keith House scheduled throughout the day.
