In 1911, with the proceeds from his illustrations for Treasure Island, the artist N.C. Wyeth purchased 18 acres of land on Rocky Hill in the village of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Possessed of "the most glorious sight in the township," Wyeth built his home and studio overlooking the valley. Here he set down roots which have nourished a family of extraordinary creativity for more than a century.

N.C. Wyeth died in 1945, and Mrs. Wyeth lived in the house until 1973. Their daughter, Carolyn Wyeth, lived in the house and painted in the studio until her death in 1994. In 1997, the National Park Service granted the property National Historic Landmark status. The Brandywine River Museum of Art owns and maintains the land and buildings which retain much of their original character.
