Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 9, 1997):
Newell Convers Wyeth's illustrations have excited the imagination of generations of readers. In a career that spanned the first half of the twentieth century, Wyeth illustrated some ninety books and countless stories for such prestigious magazines as "Harpers"," McClure's","Saturday Evening Post", and "Scribner's". Wyeth lived and worked in the several buildings that comprise this historic district, and planted his roots so deep in the Chadds Ford soil that two succeeding generations of Wyeth artists have found nourishment here. His son, Andrew, and grandson, James, both began their art training in his studio.
