Chester County Night School

Tour PA Capital Building & Governor's Mansion

Tour the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building, the building that President Theodore Roosevelt characterized as, "the handsomest building I ever saw." We will have a private tour, and the guides will point out the architectural and artistic highlights of this gilded building and help to make the history of the Capitol come alive. After touring the Capitol Building, we will have a private tour of the Pennsylvania Governor's Mansion which faces the Susquehanna River. The two and one half story Georgian Style home was designed by architect George Ewing and completed in 1968. The mansion measures 28,600 square feet and has 32 rooms. We will have a unique opportunity to dine for lunch/dinner at an authentic Amish Farm. This is not a commercial operation, but rather a working farm. We will eat in the family's kitchen and porch areas. We will be served a variety of all home-cooked goodies to delight the most discriminating taste buds. After stuffing ourselves to the near bursting point, we will be delighted with numerous home-baked desserts. Any leftover homemade bread and desserts you don't consume will be available to purchase to take home for a delicious snack later.
