Mount Pleasant Mansion is located in East Fairmount Park off of Mt. Pleasant Dr and can also be found through the Boxer's Trail. Built as a grand country estate in the mid 1760’s, Mount Pleasant Mansion is on a hilltop overlooking the Schuylkill River. Prior to its restoration by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1926, Mt. Pleasant served various public purposes, functioning once as a beer garden (how ironic?!) and later as a dairy farm providing milk and ice cream to local residents. The breath-taking beauty of the house's interiors and vistas, the elegance of the lifestyle of colonial elites, and the curiosities of Captain Macpherson's life are all on display at Mt Pleasant.
Accessible via SEPTA bus route 3 located at Reservoir Dr. and Smith Day Nursery Dr.
