Did you know that Historic Strawberry Mansion founder Judge William Lewis was a well-known lawyer and abolitionist? His obituary in the August 19, 1819 Poulson’s American Daily Advertiser described him as such: "A statesman of the Revolution, jealous of liberty himself, he wished its enjoyment to all, and while many around him were trafficking in their fellowmen, Lewis was engaged in breaking their shackles asunder."

Celebrate America's spirit — and architectural style — while visiting Historic Strawberry Mansion! Judge William Lewis built the home in the "Federal" style that was popular in the U.S. during the late 1700s. Second owner, Judge Joseph Hemphill, later added two Greek Revival style wings to the mansion. See tour hours: http://www.historicstrawberrymansion.org/plan-your-visit/
