The Penn Treaty elm, immortalized by Edward Hicks, fell during a storm on 5 March 1810. Revered as the place where William Penn met with Lenape Chief Tamanend in 1682 and pledged a treaty of friendship, the wood from the tree was prized and often fashioned into gifts for dignitaries. In addition to Lafayette, both President Lincoln and Chief Justice John Marshall were among those who received such keepsakes.
