    Short Description of Organization:

    The Wyck Association tells the story of Wyck, the quietly elegant home, historic gardens, farm buildings, and collection of objects and papers that reflect the everyday life of one Philadelphia family over three hundred years. Programs at Wyck draw on this family’s passion for education, its Quaker simplicity, and its love of natural history and horticulture. Through the preservation and interpretation of this rare resource, the Wyck Association works to enrich and strengthen community life.
