History

Chanticleer was built as the estate of Christine Penrose and Adolph G. Rosengarten, Sr. He was head of the Philadelphia pharmaceutical manufacturer Rosengarten & Sons, founded in 1822 to produce quinine, and which in 1927 became part of Merck & Co. [2] After his mother's death, Adolph G. Rosengarten, Jr. tore down his own stone house on the grounds to create its "ruin," then gave the 35-acre property, including his parent's mansion, as a public garden. It opened to visitors in 1993. [3] The garden contains lawns and large trees, the Asian woods, a pond garden, the ruin and gravel garden, teacup garden, tennis court garden, and woodland. [4]
