Woodmere Museum Docents on the Road Present
Family Ties: Thomas Hovenden and Helen Corson Hovenden
The Woodmere docents return to Ambler Library to tell stories of Philadelphia's art and artists.
Learn the stories of Thomas Hovenden and Helen Corson Hovenden, whose love for each other, their family, and the arts was reflected in their work and life.
These two influential Philadelphia artists were deeply affected by the inequalities of humanity and the ever-changing world around them after the Civil War.
Corson Hovenden's family estate (Abolition Hall) in Plymouth Meeting was a stop on the Underground Railroad.
