ABOUT:

Mount Pleasant Mansion is located in East Fairmount Park off of Mt. Pleasant Dr and can also be found through the Boxer's Trail. Built as a grand country estate in the mid 1760’s, Mount Pleasant Mansion is on a hilltop overlooking the Schuylkill River. Prior to its restoration by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1926, Mt. Pleasant served various public purposes, functioning once as a beer garden (how ironic?!) and later as a dairy farm providing milk and ice cream to local residents. The breath-taking beauty of the house's interiors and vistas, the elegance of the lifestyle of colonial elites, and the curiosities of Captain Macpherson's life are all on display at Mt Pleasant.
