Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

“Rockland Mansion is a Federal-style mansion located in east Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, overlooking the Schuylkill River. The land was bought by a Philadelphia merchant named George Thomson in 1809. The mansion was completed circa 1810 using rubble stone for the masonry work which was then finished with stucco scored to resemble cut stone. Thomson used the house as a summer residence for about five years and then sold it to another merchant named Isaac Jones in 1815 whose son sold it to the city in 1870. The house and original plot of 26 acres (11 ha) of land are situated adjacent to the Mount Pleasant Mansion along Mount Pleasant Drive.” [source: Wikipedia] Located in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. #architecturaltourist #thearchitecturaltourist #architecture #architektur #architecturedesign #architektura #architectures #arquitetura #arquitectura #architecturephotography #travelphotography #loveoldhouses #historicproperties #lovearchitecture #traditionalarchitecture #classicarchitecture #beautifulhouse #colonialhouse #colonialamerica #georgian #georgianarchitecture #federalarchitecture #federalstyle #americanhistory #fairmountpark #philadelphia #philly #philadelphiahistory #rocklandmansion #rockland
