The family members who lived at Wyck balanced tradition and innovation in every aspect of their lives. Quaker values and aesthetics are evidenced in the house and garden as well as in the family’s legacy as philanthropists, innovators, educators, applied horticulturists, and social reformers. The greatest legacy of Wyck, however, is this family’s enduring commitment to preserving Wyck and its history for future generations. Today, we honor this family’s vision and their commitment to preserving and sharing Wyck with The 1690 Society.
The 1690 Society recognizes visionaries who have made provisions for the Wyck Association through their estate and financial planning. Please consider joining The 1690 Society and ensure that Wyck will be preserved and enjoyed for generations to come. Click here for stories from 1690 Society Charter Members.
