Created in May, 2020, this virtual, informative, fun and quirky web series on Vimeo features retired Radnor teacher Clarissa F. Dillon, Ph.D., as she tends the kitchen garden at 1696 Thomas Massey House located in Broomall, Marple Township, Delaware County, PA. Beginning with the trailer, you will follow the well-known author and researcher on 18th-century domestic arts as the volunteer gardener digs in the dirt. Learn what life was like in the 17th and 18th Century for Phebe Massey, a Quaker, and her family. On average, two short videos (each under 10 minutes) are posted every month on Vimeo. Delaware County is rich in Quaker heritage, and 1696 Thomas Massey House is a beloved gem that was saved from demolition then beautifully restored and is on the National Register of Historic Places. At this time, 1696 Thomas Massey House is temporarily closed to visitors due to Covid-19 but we still have much to celebrate!
