We went when they had a wood expo. It was a really awesome FREE day! We took a tour of the beautiful grounds and fountain, learned about different birds of prey and enjoyed live music. We would go again!

Tour this lovely mansion, home of the Gifford Pinchot family. Take the regular tour which tells you the history of the home and of Milford Pa. Enjoy the well manicured lawns and historic outbuilding. Bring the whole family.
