This year, Fairmount Park’s largest historic mansion is dressed in classic holiday décor portraying “A Very Storied Christmas”. Designed by Our Garden Club of Philadelphia and Vicinity and The Porch Club of Riverton, the theme celebrates the long history of the Free Library of Philadelphia and its 130 years of promoting literacy for all Philadelphia citizens. Each room depicts a scene from a beloved Christmas story, including “The Nutcracker,” “The Polar Express” and “The Night Before Christmas.”
Historic Strawberry Mansion is open Wednesdays – Sundays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. for guided tours. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for senior citizens (65+); children under 12 are free. Find more information here.
