Kennett Square, at the heart of the Brandywine Valley, is home to Longwood Gardens. An internationally famous horticultural center on the Main Line, Longwood Gardens is over 100 years old. Displaying over 11,000 different types of plants and flowers, Longwood Gardens is 1,050 acres in size.
A Quaker family named Peirce purchased the property -- originally occupied by the Lenni Lenape Indian tribe -- from William Penn in 1700. The working farm with arboretum was purchased in 1906 by Pierre du Pont in order to preserve the trees on the farm. From 1907 to the 1930’s, Mr. du Pont created much of the present Gardens. In 1946, the Gardens were turned over to a foundation set up by Mr. du Pont. Longwood Gardens’ horticultural spirit is expressed by the phrase, ‘...to make the impossible possible.’ “Today the oranges Mr. du Pont desired actually grow in the Estate Fruit House, chrysanthemums are trained to cascade down the walls, blue poppies adorn the Conservatory in the spring, clematis bloom in March, and other impossibilities become a reality every day.”
At the center of the tri-state area of southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and northern Delaware, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was the second largest city in the United States in 1790, with a population of 28,500 people. Today it is the fifth largest in the nation with 1.5 million people. It is a city that contains many beautiful urban gardens and squares, including the largest landscaped city park in the world – Fairmount Park.
