Activity Details

Coined by American author Mark Twain, the Gilded Age in America lasted from 1870 to 1900. Once referred to as "Mansion Row," Sherman D. Phelps and his family built their home at 191 Court Street during this era. Now the last of its neighbors, this home has been preserved and is open to the public for tours, exhibitions, educational programs, and events.

Visit: Phelps Mansion Museum, 191 Court St, Binghamton, NY 13901-3503

Once part of a neighborhood filled with beautiful homes, the home of Sherman D. Phelps is the last of its neighbors.

Construction began in 1870 and the Phelps family moved into 191 Court Street in 1872. The house is full with marble floors, exquisite carved woodwork, period lighting fixtures, and period furniture. It also houses a collection of artwork ranging from paintings to frozen statues.

Sherman D. Phelps was a successful banker, businessman, and mayor of the newly incorporated City of Binghamton. His house is a legacy that tells of a time when Binghamton was growing in wealth, culture, and population.

The Phelps Mansion Museum is also an excellent example of the talent of one of New York State’s most famous 19th century architects, Isaac G. Perry. Perry was also known for his work on the New York State Capitol, as well as many buildings in the Binghamton area.

The museum is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 11am-5pm. Your ticket includes a guided tour. Tours are offered every half hour. The last tour begin at 4:30pm.
