If you want to learn more about the history of upstate New York, or Binghamton in particular, the Phelps Mansion Tour is a great place to start. It is right next to the Broome County Public Library on Court St, where you can continue your research. The mansion was built by Isaac Perry, a famous architect who also designed parts... More

My husband and I had a few hours between a wedding and the reception in Binghamton. We wanted to find something to do other than shopping, so we picked the Phelps Mansion Museum. This was not only one of the most impressive buildings we've seen, but also one of the best tours. Our knowledgeable and friendly docent, Frank, spent so... More

My brother and I grew up in the Binghamton area and our given name is Phelps. However, we are no relation to the Phelps of the Phelps mansion, but enjoyed a recent visit. Kudos to the women who have worked for many years to preserve this beautiful piece of Binghamton history. It is a shame that it is the only... More

Walking into the Phelps Mansion is like stepping back 150 years. The woodwork alone is worth the visit, mantles and door frames have been hand carved with tremendous attention to detail. Feel good afterward for preserving irreplaceable history.

I especially loved the conservatory, complete with a working fountain. This place is well worth a visit, especially if you appreciate architecture and antiques. If you are... More

The Phelps mansion is the last survivor of the grand homes that gave Binghamton's Mansion Row its name in the late 19th century. GIven its current surroundings, it's almost miraculous that it still exists, particularly in such good shape. Few furnishings are original to the house, but that scarcely matters because it is the woodwork and design that give the... More
