Sited on the hills overlooking the Delaware River, Grey Towers National Historic Site is the former family home of Gifford Pinchot, twice elected governor of Pennsylvania. The three-story mansion with conical roofed towers was built to resemble a French chateau and evokes the Pinchot family's French origins. A guided tour of the interior provides insights into the private life of the governor, while a self-guided stroll along the interpretive trails offers a chance to spot bluebirds nesting in the woods. The site also features other buildings, including several cottages, an open-air theater, and an outdoor dining area named the Finger Bowl. With our custom trip planner, Milford attractions like Grey Towers National Historic Site can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Home is not open now.
  • This amazing historic mansion and it's grounds is meticulously kept. As I live in the area, I often walk here all year round. It's peaceful, the paths well maintained, and a view that's mesmerizing. It gives the soul rest and renewed energy.
