Graeme Park: Pennsylvania Trail of History Guide

Front Cover
Stackpole Books, 2003 - Architecture - 48 pages
Graeme Park, near Horsham, Pennsylvania, is the only surviving residence of a colonial Pennsylvania governor. Sir William Keith had the house built in 1722 as a summer residence. The house was later owned by Dr. Thomas Graeme, a prominent citizen of Philadelphia, and then was passed down to his daughter, Elizabeth Ferguson, who was popular in literary circles and hosted some of the earliest salons in America. The guidebook examines the house as High Georgian architecture and recounts the lives of the three main occupants.
