Leiper House Re-Opening Soon!

After being closed for more than a year, the 1785 Thomas Leiper House in Wallingford is set to re-open to the public for tours on Sunday, August 1.

Friends of the Leiper House announced plans for the historic estate to be open most Saturday and Sunday afternoons, from 1 to 4, into December.

Guided tours show you a beautifully restored and furnished house, and tell you about Leiper family members through the generations who were part of Nether Providence history.

Suggested donations – $1.00 for adults and 50 cents for children.
