This unusual country house on 42 acres was erected between 1723 and 1735 and served as the summer home for colonial Governor Sir William Keith. Sold to Dr. Thomas Graeme in 1739, it is the only remaining Colonial Pennsylvania Governor's residence. It offers a nature trail, guided tours, picnic tables and special events and programs throughout the year. Elizabeth Graeme Ferguson (1737-1801) held a place of esteem in colonial Philadelphia's literary world as an author and leader of a literary salon. Margaret Strawbridge received this property as a wedding gift in the 1920s; kept it intact for decades and donated it to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1957.
