The exterior of Cairnwood Estate is very lovely, but the interior, not so much. But after visiting Glencairn Museum I was not surprised. Worth a look.

Spectacular Gilded Age mansion that is part of a National Landmark district. Spectacular architecture, antiques and setting. Knowledgeable guides. A must see for the area.

This is an incredible piece of American history that is well preserved and beautifully presented. The guide was incredibly knowledgable and the story behind the house reflects an important part of the history of Brynn Athen and Pennsylvania.
