1967 - Charles Herbert’s Rhododendron Society | The Kimmages and Christman Act As Caretakers

Pennsylvania’s reputation as a destination for Rhododendron breeding and presentation continues to expand as Charles Herbert helps open a Valley Forge chapter. This would be instrumental in the continued diversification of Swiss Pines, leading the grounds to become a renowned destination for Rhododendron display.

Meanwhile, Walter and Anna Kimmage act as caretakers for the manor house. A gentleman named Christman is utilized as a general handyman for upkeep and maintenance.
