Brandywine and its 19th Century Neighbors

Follow the results of American Studies students and faculty at Brandywine who have, for more than a decade, been researching the nineteenth-century history of our land and neighborhood.  Starting from the site of the new student union—a dairy-farmer’s house--move out to Yearsley Mill, Tyler Arboretum, the Quaker meetinghouses, and Cumberland Cemetery. Along the way meet some of the characters and scenes they have discovered:  an ice-cream producing social reformer, a protesting wife, a religious community divided, a reconciling place of burial, a miller struggling to survive, a traveling woman preacher, and more.
