Discovering Chestnut Hill ““Erdenheim Farm: A Legacy of Preservation From 1862 to the Present Day” lecture with Dr. Kathleen Abplanalp

May 7 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Join the Chestnut Hill Conservancy for a virtual lecture where Dr. Kathleen Abplanalp, a seasoned historian responsible for the National Register nomination, will guide us through preserving Erdenheim Farm’s buildings and conserving its open spaces. Nestled across 450 acres of preserved rolling hills and picturesque pastureland, Erdenheim Farm stands as a remarkable historic gem. Despite its name, Erdenheim Farm encompasses more than just agricultural land; it is a collection of properties steeped in history and diverse uses. For over 150 years, this expansive estate has served as a quintessential country retreat.

Kathleen Abplanalp is a historic preservation professional with over 15 years of experience in the Philadelphia area and a Ph.D. in American history with a concentration in material culture. Her work experience includes drafting historic district nominations, historical and architectural surveys, and Historic Structures Reports. Her current passion project is restoring historic wood windows.

Join us and discover the fascinating story behind this cherished property and gain insight into the profound dedication that has ensured its preservation in perpetuity.
