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, Fairmount Park Conservancy and various stewardship groups. Proceeds from this event support the ongoing stewardship, maintenance, and promotion of these treasures.
