    History of Cedar Grove

    Originally located in the Frankford section of Philadelphia, Cedar Grove was moved to Fairmount Park in 1926-28.

    Built by wealthy widow Elizabeth Coates Paschall in 1748-50, the house became the summer residence for five generations of her family.

    Featuring an unusual two-sided wall of closets and many of the original family furnishings, Cedar Grove depicts life as it might have been in the early 1800s.
