Approaching Graeme Park. Graeme is pronounced “Gram”.
The visitor center is in a converted barn from the early 1800's
Kind of a dreary cold day, but good for photography.
The cobblestones mark the original carriage turnaround.
Note fire mark of the Philadelphia Contributorship dated 1752. I think it is a donated replica.
This is the dining room. It was converted by Dr. Graeme from the original kitchen.
The original kitchen fireplace was made smaller to scale better with the room's new purpose
Love that red paint.
This is the parlor, as renovated by Dr. Graeme. Amazing Georgian panelwork, on all four walls. Unusual for Pennsylvania.
Note pediment over door. The walls retain their original paint, which has been absorbed over time by the pine woodwork.
This staircase was enlarged from an earlier winder stair.
View from bedroom window. Elizabeth Graeme watched her father die of heart attack from this window.
Beautiful paneling in bedroom. Replica tiles on fireplace. Note closets with fanlights.
Another bed chamber on the second floor.
View from the bedroom window toward barn.
Shutters on the interior versus exterior.
Third floor child's room.
Note paneling in this room compared to other 3rd floor rooms.

Rear of house. Originally named “Fountain Low” by governor Keith. Renamed “Graeme Park” when purchased by Dr. Graeme.
East Wall detail. Note arches over windows.
Front facade of house. 6 bays on this side.
Front door detail. Note bullseye glass windows.
View toward barn.
West wall. The stucco is an experiment.
Look closely. The paneling in the parlor covers two windows.
Artsy view up.
Very pretty Georgian house. The roof and dormers are interesting. Note big beautiful chimneys.
Pond and waterfall to the rear of house.
The white building across the way is a farmhouse, part of which dates to Governor Keith's time.
In warmer weather, a pretty place for a picnic.
