Historic Strawberry Mansion
Historic Strawberry Mansion was built in 1789 by Judge William Lewis, drafter of the Act for the Gradual Abolition of Slavery. A prominent Quaker lawyer in Philadelphia, Judge Lewis was a respected advisor to many of the Founding Fathers, including George Washington.
Judge Lewis built Strawberry Mansion on the banks of the Schuylkill River, in what is present day Fairmount Park. The house stands today, largely unchanged after additions in the 1820s, as an impressive mixture of Federal style and Greek revival architecture.
Historic Strawberry Mansion is the largest of the Fairmount Park houses and boasts a stunning facade and extensive rear grounds, perfect for outdoor celebrations. Learn more about planning your special events at this charming landmark location by clicking here.
HISTORIC STRAWBERRY MANSION
The rear of the Mansion has a beautiful, full-length brick terrace, a recently restored Azalea path that winds around the perimeter of the property, and provides a private natural setting on the Schuylkill River.
For generations the grounds at Historic Strawberry Mansion have been enjoyed by members of the surrounding community as a quiet escape in Fairmount Park, so close yet worlds away from the noise and bustle of Philadelphia.
