1.Park House Guides are responsible for conducting tours through Fairmount Park and its fully restored historic houses as well as walking tours of the exterior of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and its surrounding historic and artistic sites. Guides participate in a number of different programs that engage diverse audiences, such as families, school children, bus groups and other specialty-interest groups, as well as general Museum visitors. As Museum-trained volunteers, their mission includes increasing awareness of the historical treasures of the Fairmount Park Houses; educating guests about early Philadelphia and Pennsylvania history; and introducing the public to the wonderful resources of Fairmount Park. On Wednesday, June 15, 2022 Park House Guides gathered for a long awaited reunion luncheon at Strawberry Mansion. Karleen Gardner, Jean McNelis, Joyce McNeely, Bea Cromwell and Dan Miller were pictured on the terrace during the luncheon’s reception. Strawberry Mansion’s tent provided a great venue and a beautiful day for 70 PHG’s to have a wonderful reunion.
