About Bartram's Garden

Plants and flames should usually be kept apart, but when John Bartram settled on a 102-acre plot of land in 1728, he was lit with a "Botanick fire" that inspired him to create a comprehensive catalogue of local plant life. Bartram's Garden carries on his enthusiasm for making a “compleat Discovery of the Native Growth in America," collecting an array of native plants, including the oldest Ginkgo biloba in North America and the Franklinia alatamaha, which Bartrams discovered in Georgia and saved from extinction. Bartram's Garden has been a site of historic significance since 3,000 B.C., when Native Americans left behind numerous artifacts, including flakes from stone tools and fire-cracked rock. After Bartram settled on the land, it became a meeting place with his friends, including Benjamin Franklin, with whom he founded the American Philosophical Society and the country's first beach-volleyball league. John’s passion for plants became a successful family business as he began shipping crates of precious seeds back to Britain. He helped color Britain’s gardens with new magnolias, rhododendrons, and sugar maples, none of which had been seen outside of America. Today, the garden stretches more than 45 acres of parkland, wildlife habitats, tidal wetlands, and a reclaimed meadow. Visitors can wander the grounds and gaze at Bartram's stone homestead and farm buildings, or look around at the same trees and plants that Bartram discovered centuries ago. A recently completed mile-long trail extends to the Schuylkill riverfront as part of the East Coast Greenway. Plans are currently underway to bridge this trail to the east banks of the Schuylkill.
