Jewish Heritage Tours
During Jewish American Heritage Month, we look back at some of the notable residents of Woodford Mansion. Woodford owner David Franks came from a respected Jewish merchant family and was active in colonial trade and enterprise. His daughter, Rebecca Franks, was notorious for throwing lavish parties (and showing a preference for British soldiers). Learn more about this fascinating family on these special tours.
Friday, May 27th through Monday, May 30th
Memorial Day Weekend
The story of Woodford Mansion is a part of the story of the American Revolution. Woodford founder William Coleman was a Quaker and a significant Philadelphia patriot, while the Franks family often supported the crown. Learn what life was like for the people at home during the Revolutionary War on a tour of Woodford Mansion, and through the Colonial antiques on display.
