    "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.

    Cost: $10 Per Person Per Event
