Candlelight Tour

Holidays, Horses & Hounds

Hibernia Mansion as seen today, reflects the changes of lifestyle and social status of its various owners over the past two 200 plus years. At the turn of the 20th century, Hibernia became the country estate of Colonel Franklin Swayne, a wealthy Philadelphia lawyer, who instituted lavish and extensive renovations and activities for his personal pleasure. Among those pleasures was his love of Fox hunting.

This year’s theme of “Holidays, Horses and Hounds” portrays what the Mansion may have looked like during a holiday hunt. Colonel Swayne, accompanied by local gentlemen, often hunted informally on the property.

Come back in time with us to enjoy the many fox hunting prints original to the house. See the red jacket that the Colonel wore when fox hunting in England. 
Enjoy a delightful glimpse of a bygone ear. Add your voices to the carolers, take part in the sweets waiting for you in the Ballroom along with Santa Claus himself.
