Historic Houses in Fairmount Park – Mount Pleasant and Cedar Grove

Two 18th century colonial houses provide a unique representation of Philadelphia’s rich cultural heritage. These locations, among other historic houses of Fairmount Park, are considered part the most significant collection of early American homes still in existence, and are available for guided public tours from April through December.

Mount Pleasant

Built between 1762 and 1765 by Scottish ship captain John Macpherson and his first wife, Margaret,this grand country estate is situated high atop cliffs overlooking the Schuylkill River. During a visit to the residence in 1775, John Adams proclaimed this to be “the most elegant seat in Pennsylvania.”

Cedar Grove

Originally located in the Frankford section of Philadelphia, this residence began in 1746 as a small, grey stone summer house with a dining room, upper bed chamber and back rooms. Construction began with owner Elizabeth Coates Paschall, then subsequently served as a summer residence for 5 generations of the Philadelphia Coates, Paschall and Morris families.

Through the years and generations, a number of additions were made, including additional floors and exterior piazza. As a result, the present-day estate is more than double the size of the original dwelling
