Two types of tours are offered by the New Hope Historical Society:
Parry Mansion Tours
The Parry Mansion was built in 1784 by Benjamin Parry, one of New Hope's founders. The house has the distinction of having been occupied by four generations of Benjamin Parry's direct descendants. The line of Parry family ownership ended in 1966 when Margaret Parry Lang sold the Mansion to the New Hope Historical Society.
The furnishings of the eleven rooms reflect 125 years of decorative changes. Each room represents a different time period during which the Parry family occupied the Mansion.
For an authentic New Hope experience, the Parry Mansion is a must-see. Tour guides are trained to offer historical information along with the "stories" that have been passed through generations. Come and share in this rich history.
