Give your group a historical and horticultural adventure!

Come to Wyck and learn about the Haines family, who lived at Wyck for nine generations and saved everything along the way.  Walk around our historic rose garden on your own, or learn about the landscape from Wyck’s own Horticulturist. Add something special to your visit by seeing a rare item from our collection or having lunch in the garden. So many possibilities, so much history. Join us at Wyck and become part of our family.

The Valley Gardeners of Collegeville visit on July 12, 2017

I can’t tell you how delighted our members were with our visit to Wyck Rose Garden and Historic Mansion today.  Everyone enjoyed themselves.  Please thank Martha, Elizabeth, and your intern on our behalf for their excellent presentations.    Seeing the special artifacts, especially the original Jane Bowne Haines’ planning notebook, was such a treat and the whole experience was extremely memorable.   I especially want to thank you, who went above and beyond, to ensure we had a good visit.   Your presentation and tour gave us a real insight into the place that was home to all those Haines’ generations and having the pop up tent there for lunch was a great idea (Marian Sherwood-Bolis, Vice-President, Valley Gardeners Club of Collegeville).
