Meet the historic houses that are participating this year.


“Christmas in Fairmount Park” celebrates its 45th year of delighting visitors with this year’s very special theme, “A Very Philly Christmas.”

This Philadelphia holiday tradition will feature six of the park’s treasured historic houses – Cedar Grove, Laurel Hill Mansion, Lemon Hill Mansion, Mount Pleasant, Historic Strawberry Mansion, and Woodford – each decked out in the season’s finest.

In the spirit of this year’s theme, the historic houses will host four special events showcasing what makes Philadelphia a very special place: music, food, neighbors, and families.

Visitors can visit the historic houses throughout December. Simply check “Holiday Schedule” or one of the historic houses to find out more about operating hours and other events.

The Historic Houses of Fairmount Park are some of the best-preserved examples of 18th and 19th century early American architecture, all located in one of the country’s most beautiful urban parks. Promotion and programming for the historic houses are supported through a partnership between the City of Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Department, the Fairmount Park Conservancy and various stewardship groups. Proceeds from the events support the ongoing stewardship, maintenance and promotion of these treasures.
