Point of Interest Details

This festive party scene from one of the Whartons' silent films was shot outside the historic Picnic Pavillion which was, along with the Wharton Studio -- its sister building across the plaza -- built in 1896 and designed by Vivian & Gibb, architects who apprenticed with William Henry Miller, one of Ithaca's foremost architects who designed many of the city's iconic buildings.

As the pavillion was part of the studio compound, it was used for both indoor and outdoor shooting.

Plans are in the works to restore and refurbish the Picnic Pavillion by the Friends of Stewart Park in partnership with the City of Ithaca. Currently, the building's seven original door and window units are being restored to their original glory.
