Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

The Woodlands

The Woodlands

The Woodlands, a National Historic Landmark in West Philadelphia’s Spruce Hill neighborhood, combines an 18th-century English garden with a 19th-century rural cemetery, which is still in use. What to see there? A beautiful arboretum; elaborate customized Victorian funerary monuments; the resting places for 30,000 people, including notable Philadelphians such as financier Francis Martin Drexel and artist Thomas Eakins; one of the nation’s most architecturally sophisticated neoclassical houses; and many birds, to the delight of avid bird watchers.
