Cliveden is one of Philadelphia’s most significant historic sites. The story of Cliveden reflects the diversity in American history through the stories of one household over 250 years. Built 1763-1767, Cliveden was occupied by seven generations of the Chew family, including three women as heads of household, and their service staff, enslaved, indentured and free. From the programs offered at Cliveden–from our award-winning Cliveden Conversations–to fun events such as Clues & Booze & Chews: Scavenger Hunt, our programs bring old and new friends to our site and helps us continue our mission to share Cliveden’s history with the community.
With your support, we can plan new programs, maintain the buildings and grounds, and continue our efforts in sharing new information about the Chew family! Donations can be made two ways:
