One of Philadelphia's premier event locations, Knowlton is a 19th-century country estate with a rich history and an exciting future.


Built in 1881 by famous Victorian architect Frank Furness, this fully restored mansion features original antique furnishings. You will find richly colored stained glass windows, and oriental rugs. In addition, there is an impressive art collection, ornately-carved mantelpieces and geometrically patterned woodwork throughout.

Furthermore, the new conservatory addition includes glass skylights, 35-foot vaulted ceilings, a center cupola, and intricate woodwork to mirror his original designs.
