Here, William Hamilton (1745-1813) created one of the finest landscape gardens of its' day and introduced many exotic plants. His mansion and stable, built 1787-92, are early examples of the neo-classical Adamesque-Federals style. In 1840 the estate became one of the first large rural cemeteries in America. The writer S. Weir Mitchell, artist Thomas Eakins, nurse-reformer Alice Fisher, and architect Wilson Eyre are buried here.
