Rhoneymeade: where art and nature meet.

Rhoneymeade is an intimate Garden where a blossoming Arboretum nurtures a variety of sculptures.  Surrounded by acres of farm, field, hedgerow and woodland, Rhoneymeade Sculpture Gardens straddles a high North - South Ridge in the valley between Nittany and Tussey Mountains.  

Located between Boalsburg and Centre Hall in Centre County, the 150 acre site was first settled by Michael Rhone in 1794 and has been continuously farmed for over 200 years.  A brick farmhouse, finished in 1853 by Michael Rhone’s grandson, Leonard Rhone [originator of the Grange Fair], is near the center of the property. 

The Farm was purchased by Dr. Richard Morgan, a retired Penn State professor, in 1984.  Landscaping the six acres around the house began immediately,  In 1986, Richard signed a conservation easement with ClearWater Conservancy to protect the open space resources of the land. Rhoneymeade was incorporated in 1989 as a non-profit charitable organization. 

 Dr. Morgan passed away August 23, 2015, (Click for Obituary Link ) but his vision for Rhoneymeade lives on in our Mission - and continues to guide and inspire us:

“To preserve our farm, fields, and forest,

To create an oasis of beauty, both natural and manmade, and

To share this with all who wish to come.”
