    What to Expect
    Visit: Phelps Mansion Museum, 191 Court St, Binghamton, NY 13901-3503

    Once part of a neighborhood filled with beautiful homes, the home of Sherman D. Phelps is the last of its neighbors.

    Construction began in 1870 and the Phelps family moved into 191 Court Street in 1872. The house is full with marble floors, exquisite carved woodwork, period lighting fixtures, and period furniture. It also houses a collection of artwork ranging from paintings to frozen statues.

    Sherman D. Phelps was a successful banker, businessman, and mayor of the newly incorporated City of Binghamton. His house is a legacy that tells of a time when Binghamton was growing in wealth, culture, and population.

    The Phelps Mansion Museum is also an excellent example of the talent of one of New York State’s most famous 19th century architects, Isaac G. Perry. Perry was also known for his work on the New York State Capitol, as well as many buildings in the Binghamton area.

    The museum is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 11am-5pm. Your ticket includes a guided tour. Tours are offered every half hour. The last tour begin at 4:30pm.

    The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and the mansion is just beautiful. So much woodwork and craftsmanship that you don't see anymore.

    Sorry, I just saw this. We went the beginning of May and I didn't notice their future hours. I'm sure the website can tell you any days they are closed - or you could call them though.

    I'm sorry, just saw this. I'm sure you got in though if you went. One can call ahead and reserve if it gets really busy, but I think most people can get right in and go on the next tour.
