In-person performances of Liberty to Go to See returns!
Cliveden's annual dramatic event returned for its 9th year of production in June 2022, featuring the landscape and an updated script.
Greenspace & Community Engagement
Cliveden's relationship with the community continued to blossom in 2022 through access to the grounds from Germantown Avenue, using our Carriage House as a rental venue, and welcoming a new Community Engagement Coordinator to the staff.
Education & Research
In-person tours returned to Cliveden in spring 2022. New research from the Chew Family Papers was shared through a series of Cliveden Conversations, and the 2022 Revolutionary Germantown Festival was held virtually.
Cliveden undertook a number of preservation projects in 2022, including restoring the front gate, restoring the interior of the School Room, and treating the wood floors in the Main House. Historian Emily Cooperman conducted a cultural landscape study, researching the Chew Family Papers for new details about way the Cliveden property evolved and was used by the people who lived and worked at Cliveden over 200 years.
Illuminating Hidden Lives
Cliveden, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and the African American Genealogy Group shared their findings from research into the Chew Family Papers to share stories of African Americans in the mid-Atlantic.
