This Pre-Revolutionary stone house exemplifies Pennsylvania architecture in the English style. Inside, view an excellent display of Philadelphia furniture and craftwork. Quaker Susanna Wright built the house in 1738, and it is rumored to have subterranean passageways that lead to the Susquehanna River. Once a prosperous lumbering town, Columbia was considered as a possible location for the state capital. Today, a number of historic museums and notable examples of Pennsylvania architecture attract tourists to this charming riverside town. Come tour Wright's Ferry Mansion to learn more about the region's (and America's!) great history.
