From 7/28/2014 through 11/23/2014

Historic Property Tour- Kuerner Farm (Kuerner Farm)
From 7/28/2014 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.
