Historic Property Tour- Kuerner Farm (Kuerner Farm)
From 10/21/2014 through 11/23/2014

For more than 70 years, the Kuerner Farm was a major source of inspiration to Andrew Wyeth.

In 2011, the Kuerner Farm was designated a National Historic Landmark.

Thanks in large part to the philanthropic spirit of Karl Kuerner, Jr. and his family, the Brandywine River Museum acquired the Kuerner Farm in 1999 and began offering educational tours in 2004.

From 10/21/2014 through 11/23/2014

In 1911, with the proceeds from his illustrations for Treasure Island, the artist N.C. Wyeth purchased 18 acres of land on Rocky Hill in the village of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.

Here he set down roots which have nourished a family of extraordinary creativity for more than a century.
