Knowlton Mansion

Old World Grace and Contemporary Spirit

This 19th-century country estate boasts a rich history and an exciting future.  With painstaking care, Conroy Catering restored the mansion’s interiors to reflect the Victorian splendor of the past.  The newly constructed contemporary yet warm conservatory opens to expansive cocktail terraces, a pergola for wedding ceremonies, stables, and thirteen acres of magnificent perennial gardens.

Make Yourself At Home

In 1879 renowned architect, Frank Furness, went to great lengths to make this elegant house a place of exquisite comfort and good taste for his clients.  Today we serve our clients in the same fashion. Welcome to Knowlton Mansion.

Praise for Knowlton Mansion

  • “We had such a great experience with Knowlton. From the time we had our first meeting, through the day of our wedding, everything went perfect! The actual venue space is stunning: they set up candles everywhere, and are really flexible in how you set up the space. You don’t need much decorating because the space is so beautiful on its own. You have access to the whole building—so guests can explore the mansion and its grounds. They have horses and a gorgeous wine cellar too, which makes for some cool pictures.”
    —Amy and Brandon—
  • “The mansion is so beautiful and the staff a pleasure to work with. An unexpected bit of charm in Northeast Philadelphia!”
    —Melissa and Steve—
  • “Knowlton Mansion was the perfect venue for our wedding. We wanted something rustic but elegant and it definitely had all of those qualities. Our guests loved looking in all the rooms and sampling wine in the wine cellar.”
