A site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and a proud member of Historic Germantown, Cliveden was built in 1763-1767, and was home to seven generations of the Chew family and the men and women who worked for them. It was the site of the Battle of Germantown in October 1777, and is an important example of Philadelphia Georgian architecture. 

Cliveden focuses on telling the multiple narratives of the property by interpreting the buildings and grounds; giving a voice to the men and women--black, white, free, enslaved, and indentured--who played a role in the Cliveden story. 

Nestled in historic Philadelphia, with nearly 6 acres of beautiful lawn, garden, tree and brush , the site is open for walk-in tours in the spring and fall.
