Wyck is a special place where history intersects -- and influences -- contemporary life and feeds curiosity about the world. We recognize the unique opportunities that we have with our verdant, largely unaltered 2.5-acre site nestled within an urban community. Utilizing our site's land, history, and collections, we offer reasonably priced public programs and free community festivals with an emphasis on local history, horticulture, urban agriculture, and heritage conservation.
