Friends of Chamounix Mansion

Description

Chamounix Mansion was built in 1802 by George Plumstead. Plumstead was a wealthy Philadelphia merchant. His father and grandfather both served as former Philadelphia mayors. He built Chamounix as his seasonal retreat in the country -- within a day’s journey of the city, but far enough from Colonial Philadelphia to escape its crowds and summer heat.
