MANSION HOUSE FOUNDATION
AT RADLEY RUN
Established in 2019, our goal is to restore and preserve the 250-year-old Mansion House that has been a part of the rich historical legacy of not only Chester County, but our country as a whole. We strive to increase awareness and funds to support our mission, serving as a 501(c)(3) public charity. All individual contributions and donations are tax advantaged.
This support will allow the Foundation to fully realize our goals of restoring the Mansion House back to its former glory and establishing it as an educational landmark and premier setting for tours and social gatherings to be enjoyed by current and future generations to come.
The Mansion House Foundation at Radley Run (MHF) strives to restore, preserve, and protect the Chester County, Pennsylvania historic culture of the Battle of the Brandywine and the Brandywine Meadow Farm’s Fox Hunting Era and their connection with the Mansion House at Radley Run, (circa 1700). Our goal is to create an enriched experience for our community through education, engagement, and historic preservation.
We are proud to showcase our completed accomplishments, as well as share planned undertakings in the path to restoring the Mansion House campus to its full potential once more.
The Mansion House occupies a unique niche in the history of Chester County, PA as it is registered on the Birmingham Township list of Historic Resources and is part of the Painter Complex. The James Painter House, the original part of the Mansion House, was in use during the Battle of the Brandywine in 1777 during the American Revolution and witnessed some of the significant events surrounding the battle. Later it operated as one of our area's premier Hunts.
We hope to restore this important piece of our community's history so it can remain a special space which multiple generations can gather and enjoy for years to come. Our goal is to create an enriched experience for our community through education, engagement and historic preservation.
