Be sure to visit Historic Strawberry Mansion this holiday season, Fairmount Park’s largest historic house. This year, the Garden Club of Philadelphia and Vicinity and The Porch Club of Riverton will decorate Historic Strawberry Mansion with the theme of “A Very Storied Christmas,” saluting the long history of the Free Library of Philadelphia and its 130 years of promoting literacy for all Philadelphia citizens. Each room will depict a scene from a beloved Christmas story, including The Nutcracker and The Night Before Christmas. Tours are available throughout the season, giving visitors an opportunity to view the mansion’s beautiful decor, as well as an impressive collection of dolls and vintage toys dating back to the 18th century.
Tours available Wednesdays - Sundays 10AM-4pm. The mansion is closed December 24-26.
