Stenton

When James Logan, secretary to Pennsylvania founder William Penn, first set out to build his home in the 1730, he planned a simple country house in which to retire. Logan's plans changed, however, and Stenton ultimately became the stately Georgian mansion that stands today as an almost perfectly preserved example of what life was like for the upper class in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The House

Before it was leased to The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America, who opened the estate as a Museum 1900, Stenton was owned by six generations of Logans. Past documents and records informed the preservation, and descendants of the Logan family provided much of the furniture and collection. Carefully curated based on actual Stenton inventories, the furnishings help make Stenton one of the most authentic and immersive museums in Philadelphia.

The Grounds

Of what was once a 511-acre plantation, only three acres remain. But many of the preserved outbuildings, such as the carriage house and kitchen, hint at how vast this estate really was. Visitors should not miss a stroll through the Colonial Revival Garden, the site at which the Garden Club of America was founded in 1913, the year after the garden was installed.

Definitely recommend going if you like history. Tour was about an hour. Our guide was great, friendly & knowledgeable- She was able to answer all of our random questions! I love when groupon offers these types of tours. It's not just the price- it's also that some of these organizations do not get much publicity. I had never heard of Stenton Mansion and would never had found it otherwise.👍👍
