The Garden Guide

Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania

The garden was started by John and Lydia Morris, wealthy Quaker eccentrics with the time and money to travel in Europe. They built a summer home on Chestnut Hill and laid out the garden in the Mixed Style. It is now managed as a garden and arboretum by the University of Pennsylvania and retains its European flavor. There is a Mercury Temple and a Fernery. The Rose Garden was created in 1888.
