Event description

Description

Once a party pad, always a party pad! Grab a glass of historic Fish House Punch and take in the spectacular interiors of one of America’s finest federal-period mansions, unbuttoned like you've never seen it before. The Read House was built around 1800 along the cobblestone streets of Old New Castle, steps away from where William Penn first landed in America. It became a social hub once again in the 1920s, complete with its own basement speakeasy. Come see the house decked out for the holidays and help us reimagine this Philadelphia-region gem for the 21st century!

Admission includes drinks, snacks, and VIP mansion tours

Casual cocktail attire
