Cliveden accomplished much this year. In 2023, we...
...debuted a new exhibit
Our new exhibit, The Turmoil of Transition: The mid-nineteenth century at Cliveden, debuted in May and featured three dramatic performances in the summer. The Haley Foundation generously supported both the exhibit and dramatic performances.
...engaged with our community on Second Saturdays
From May to October, Cliveden held free community events every second Saturday. Each Saturday had a different theme such as pets, family and children, preservation advocacy and citizenship.
...installed new signage, gardens & The Literacy Nest
Cliveden's landscape now has new signs welcoming visitors to site and pollinator gardens. Mt. Airy CDC held a fun day to celebrate the installation of The Literacy Nest, an outdoor reading area to promote literacy in Northwest Philadelphia.
...highlighted living history at the 2023 Revolutionary Germantown Festival
The Revolutionary Germantown Festival returned on October 7th featuring a replica of George Washington's tent from the Museum of the American Revolution, a memorial to soldiers who lost their lives at the Battle of Germantown, and a variety of activities that covered topics such as the soldier experience, brush huts and clothes.
...worked with archaeologists in the 1767 Kitchen Dependency
Archaeologists came to Cliveden this summer and worked in the Kitchen Dependency as part of our new project, Transcending Thresholds, supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
