Indian Hannah

Longwood Gardens

title image
Indian Hannah (1730-1802) was born in a cabin on nearby land that later became part of Longwood Gardens. She was the last of the Lenni Lenape in Chester County, PA, when she died in neighboring Embreeville.

In a manner befitting Victorian times, George W. Peirce (1814-1880), a descendant of the original owner of the Longwood property, paid respect to Indian Hannah by fashioning a memorial "grave" in this woods and marking it with a simple wooden cross. The tradition was continued by Pierre S. du Pont (1880-1954), and now by Longwood Gardens.
