"The Wharton Homes of the Guilded Age"
Wealthy industrialists of the late nineteenth century created opulent
homes and estates to reflect their power and position. Most people familiar with
Batsto Village know that Joseph Wharton remodeled the big house at the village
of Batsto into the mansion we know today. Lesser known are two other estates he
created around the same time. Ontalauna, completed in 1880, was the family's
"headquarters" in suburban Philadelphia while Marbella, in Jamestown, Rhode
Island provided a summertime retreat. These three impressive homes will be
discussed utilizing historic and present day photographs, as well as recollections
of the Wharton Family. Tours of the mansion will follow.
