Chanticleer House & Garden Tour: Lunch At The White Dog Cafe

June 3 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm


Delight in a guided tour of the Rosengarten estate, built as a country retreat by the late Adolph G. Rosengarten Jr., a former Army spy during WWII, Philadelphia corporate director and Main Line philanthropist. Mr. Rosengarten’s humor is evident in naming his home after the estate “Chanticleer” in Thackeray’s 1855 novel The Newcomes. The fictional Chanticleer was “mortgaged up to the very castle windows” but “still the show of the county”. A garden of pleasure and learning, relaxing yet filled with ideas to take home, Chanticleer has been called the most romantic, imaginative, and exciting public garden in America. Enjoy a delicious lunch at The White Dog Cafe; the perfect addition to a day immersed in enchanted surroundings.
