We visited this historic home on Saturday1/23/15 and arrived at 3:30 pm. Since they close at 4:00, we were afraid that we might not be able to take the tour . . . but we were wrong. After ringing the bell, we were greeted by the tour guide who gave us a very informative tour that lasted almost an hour.... More

The GPS sent us to the wrong place but it we got directions from some baseball players & were very glad we did!! Our warm & friendly guide, Eric, is also the caretaker and his pride in the mansion & it's collection showed. He did not rush us- taking his time to fully explain the history of the home, it's...

My GPS really didn't me to find this delightful old mansion, but after giving the house a call, the guide on duty was able to get me there in the poring rain. Once in the house, I was so happy I had found it. The house has been well maintained and they still had the place all decorated for Christmas.... More

Although this mansion is open throughout the year, I would suggest trying to visit during the holiday house tour which is generally held Thursday - Sunday, the first two weeks in December. There are six Fairmount Park mansions decorated by volunteer garden clubs, who do a beautiful job. Inside the house are informative guides who provide interesting history about the... More

With only one other review for Woodford Mansion, we didn't really know what to expect... but we were thrilled with what we found! We were the only ones there (on my Birthday) and the guide made it a very personal experience, showing us "behind the scenes" areas not usually part of the tour and focusing on areas of the homes...

I recently visited Woodford Mansion, one of the historic summer "country houses" that were built by Colonial Philadelphians. While it just looks like one of the many historic houses in and around Philly, it is surprising on the inside. The house has a fascinating history and every room is filled with period antiques. It is architecturally quite unique with a... More
