The Mill Grove Collection includes artifacts, deeds, maps, manuscripts, photographs, and prints that document the history of the site and the people that lived there. A major focus of the collection is the life and art of artist and naturalist John James Audubon, who lived at Mill Grove from 1803-1806. The collection also includes artifacts and archival collections that document the ownership of the property by the Wetherill family, from 1813 until the 1950s.
