New Hope Historical Society and Parry Mansion [PA]

The New Hope Historical Society seeks to preserve and share the history of New Hope, PA, which has served as a home to the Lenni-Lenape, Dutch, English, and Quakers, among others. The society operates the Parry Mansion, a 1784 residence which currently displays 124 years of the decorative arts. Each room speaks to a different period of the Parry family's inhabitance.

The society offers guided tours of the mansion and 1-mile guided tours of the neighborhood. Neighborhood tours discuss citizens of note, the Revolutionary War, and the fishing industry.
