Friday Evenings at Atsion Mansion

The Atsion Mansion will be open for evening tours each Friday in April. Spend your spring exploring one of Wharton State Forest’s architectural treasures. Constructed in 1826 as a summer home for Atsion’s ironmaster, Samuel Richards, the house is now preserved as an important example of nineteenth-century domestic architecture in South Jersey. Evening tours are conducted by lantern light, as the building was never electrified! Tours start at 6 and 7 p.m., are 45-55 minutes long and begin outside, between the mansion and office. Atsion Mansion is located at 744 US 206, Shamong. Upcoming tours are April 19 and 26.
