Wyck is a special place where history intersects — and influences — contemporary life and feeds curiosity about the world. We recognize the unique opportunities that we have with our largely unaltered 2.5-acre green space nestled within an urban community. Utilizing our site’s land, history, and collections, we offer reasonably priced public programs, free community festivals, and a weekly farmers market with an emphasis on local history, horticulture, urban agriculture, and community.
All of our programs contribute toward our core mission to perpetuate the original Wistar-Haines family values of innovation, social responsibility, and environmental sustainability.
