The Philadelphia Antiques Show
April 8-11, 2006

Special Loan Exhibit: The Schuylkill Villas

This exhibit will showcase the history and architecture of 18th century houses in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. In addition to period furniture and decorative arts, the loan exhibit will include many documents and photographs. The houses to be featured are Mount Pleasant, Cedar Grove, Lemon Hill, Laurel Hill, Strawberry Mansion, Solitude and Woodford. 

The 2006 Philadelphia Antiques Show will run from April 8 through April 11 at the 33rd Street Armory. Proceeds from the show will benefit HUP’s Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery.

Laurel Hill
Laurel Hill, Fairmount Park, circa 1764-1767, was the summer home of Rebecca Rawle and Samuel Shoe-maker. Prior to the Revolutionary War, Shoemaker served a term as mayor of Philadelphia. Originally, Laurel Hill was a two-story Georgian brick structure. In the late 18th or early 19th century, a single-story wing was added to the south side of the home and later, a two-story octagonal wing was built on the north side. Photo by Lynn Rosenthal.
