The estate features an historic 1912 mansion designed by Horace Trumbauer. The mansion was built by Col. Rober Learning Montgomery, a senior partner in the firm now known as Janney Montgomery Scott. The estate was the inspiration for “The Philadelphia Story,” a Phillip Barry play that was turned into an Oscar-winning movie staring Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant. This is the last Horace Trumbauer estate in the country still occupied by the family that commissioned it. The mansion was beautifully restored by scion Robert Montgomery Scott in the 1990’s.
All but one of the portraits in the house are of family members stretching back to their time in England and Scotland, and all are by world renowned portrait painters. The family graciously makes the mansion available for non-profit events as their calendar permits
The house can accommodate 100 for a seated dinner, 300 for cocktails. If a tent is put along side of the house, seated dinner dances for 250 can take place, or cocktail/station reception for 400.
Tents are not permitted anywhere else on the grounds. Valet parking is required for any event larger than 60.
All inquiries are to be directed to Pol Duffy, who will consult with the family.
