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.

  • We were trying to see Pinchot Falls but couldn't find the right trail to access it, so we toured the property here and it was lovely. Kids were a little bored so prob not for them,  more »
  • Loved the outdoor dining table Beautiful property Staff was very informative We where allowed to sit in the chairs on the front porch which made it more special  more »
  • Absolutely beautiful place to visit! Walked the amazing grounds at our leisure taking in all the beauty around! It was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Will definitely return for an inside tour!♥️
  • If you enjoy walking through historical mansions, you'll find this place both pleasing to the eye and rich in historical content. I visited the place two weeks ago and I'm still excited that I went. Besides for being beautiful, it was the summer house for a family that was very influential in America in the first half of the 20th Century. Highly recommend!!!
