The mansion, as seen today, reflects the changes of lifestyle and social status of its various owners over the past two hundred years. At the turn of the 20th century, Hibernia became the country estate of Colonel Franklin Swayne, a wealthy Philadelphia lawyer, who added extensive renovations and lavish entertainment for his personal pleasure. Among those pleasures was his love of fox hunting.

This year’s theme of “Holidays, Horses & Hounds” portrays how the Mansion may have appeared during a holiday hunt. Colonel Swayne often hunted informally on the property accompanied by local gentlemen. Step back in time with us and enjoy the many fox hunting prints original to the house. See the red jacket that the Colonel wore when fox hunting in England.

The tour includes a stop in the Mansion’s Ballroom, where the Friends of Hibernia will provide holiday cheer and refreshments.  
Add your voices to the carolers, take part in the sweets awaiting you, and bring your wish list for Santa.
