Highland Historical Society and Highlands Mansion and Gardens [PA]

The Highlands Mansion and Gardens is a 44-acre historic site with a late-18th-century Georgian mansion and two-acre formal garden. Surrounded by massive stone walls, the gardens offer an example of early-20th-century estate gardening with an unusual blend of horticulture and architecture. The site features nine outbuildings, including a bank barn, springhouse, greenhouse, smokehouse, and Gothic Revival gardener's cottage.

The mansion offers tours and educational and recreational programs.
