Fort Hunter Mansion and Park
Fort Hunter Mansion and Park's history is simply intriguing! Built in 1814 during the French and Indian war, this mansion served as a alarm center and a supply base back in the year 1725. The Fort Hunter park offers a stunning view of the Susquehanna river and the Blue mountains. Featuring Victorian architecture, the mansion is quite an attraction for the tourists. Some of the attractions within the park include a museum shop, a tavern house, a conservancy, a covered bridge and Heckton church that can be rented for weddings.
We visit the Fort Hunter house and museum every year. They offer year round activites for all ages! From family movies nights to ice cream socials, the Fort Hunter property is a great place to have family/group picnics.
They are open year round and my children enjoy the house tour every year! I particuarly am found of the Giant Sycamore trees that have to be some of the largest in the state!
The secret garden on the property of the mansion is a nice treat to try and replicate as many of my neighbors have done.
