Haldeman Mansion

Architecture, culture, History, nature, Photography

The Haldeman Mansion is located on Locust Grove road in Bainbridge, PA. It’s in a small rural area, surrounded by nature. The front porch, with overhanging roof, faces the railroad, just beyond that is the beautiful Susquehanna River.

The grounds are rich in Native American History. However, as times changed, so did the property. In 1811 the mansion was completed. It became the birthplace of Professor Samuel Steman Haldeman.

The mansion is something to see. It has three floors and a basement. The grounds also contain a carriage house, summer house, and several ancient trees. When you visit this location it feels as though you’ve taken a step through time.

The Haldeman Mansion Preservation Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring this beauty. They provide open houses, and several annual events, including: the strawberry festival, Victorian tea, tavern dinner, apple fall festival, and more.
