Lucy Depp Experience

The Lucy Depp Experience is a project that contemplates the Depp family lineage and land from the lenses of modern performing artists. The home was established on nearly 400 acres in Concord Township in 1835. Abram Depp purchased the land from Joseph Sullivant (son of Franklinton founder Lucas Sullivant) making it Delaware county’s first farm owned by an African-American. The stories are told from the lens of those who live on, on the land that is still sustained, by persons who understand its history.
