The interior of the museum is interpreted to two time periods: downstairs to the 1860’s and upstairs to the 1870’s and 1880’s. Likewise the gardens represent two distinct 19th century eras: the Downing garden is circa 1850’s and the Scott garden is circa 1870’s. As you walk up the brick walkway and through the front door, you are transported back to Victorian-era Philadelphia.

If you love Victorian era furnishings, architecture, literature and history support the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion. The Mansion is a hidden gem located in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. The Mansion offers diverse and educational programs and events year round. Did you know that 40% of the Mansion’s operating funds come from annual contributions from individuals just like you? Your contribution is important. Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion is a not-for-profit house museum. Your gift is tax deductible.
