This is a great piece of local history--and I found the story behind the mansion, and of Asa Packer, quite interesting. It is an easy and inexpensive tour, and a must-do for your visit to Carbon County, Pennsylvania.

The tour of the mansion was full of information, the tour guide was very proud of this local treasure. Go early in the day so there is more sunlight. The home can be dark d/t the woodwork in the home and the dim lighting, but still so much to see and learn
