General:
The property, home of Charles Wilson Peale, lies on the outskirts of Germantown. Peale developed the estate from a one hundred acre farm, laying out his garden with box-bordered walks, lilacs, summer houses, arches, and pools. William Logan Fisher bought the property, which adjoined the Fisher estate (Wakefield) and the Logan estate (Stenton), in ca. 1825. He bought it for his daughter, Sarah on her marriage to William Wister. Sarah Logan Wister Starr, granddaughter of the former couple and daughter of John Wister inherited the estate. She added telepone and electricity with underground cables so that the garden would not be disturbed with poles. Sarah's husband, James Starr, added water and rock gardens, while she added a garden of 100 hybrid tea roses. A Chinese style garden was added after a trip to China in 1933.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles Wilson Peale (former owner, 1780); Sarah Logan Fisher Wister (former owner, 1823); John Wister (former owner); Sarah Logan Wister Starr (former owner, 1922-1956); and La Salle University (owners of portions of property and house, 1926, 1984).
