History of Mount Hope Mansion

Over the course of 208 years, Mount Hope Estate and Winery, located in Northern Lancaster County, has grown from a private residence to a flourishing historic estate featuring spectacular entertainment. Outdoor festivals, indoor theater and a Victorian wine shop provide something for everyone 365 days of the year.

Mount Hope began as the summer home for four generations of the Grubb family, an early American iron master family who found their way from England seeking their fortune. The patriarch of the family, Peter Grub II, began purchasing the properties that were to become the Estate in 1779.

The house itself was built in 1800-1805 by Peter’s son, Henry Bates Grubb. It was designed in a classic Federal style and originally featured only 10 rooms. At the same time, the formal gardens surrounding the Mansion were created which continues to exist this day.

Daisy Elizabeth Brooke Grubb (1850-1936) was the last member of the Grubb family to reside at Mount Hope. It was she, in 1895, who enlarged the manor home to an elaborate 32-room Mansion.

Miss Daisy passed away in 1936 and Mount Hope was subdivided and sold. It passed through several owners until December 1979 when the estate was purchased by Chuck Romito, who envisioned it as a place where award-winning, quality wines were produced and sold. Vineyards were planted, wines were made and Mount Hope Estate & Winery opened for business in 1980.

“Murder at Mount Hope”

The 12th annual Murder at Mount Hope Mansion Mystery Dinner Theater begins in 2020.

Experience the interactive, culinary “who-done-it” while enjoying a sumptuous four-course meal and the opportunity to become the detective, interrogate the suspects, put the clues together and uncover the truth!

Bring your appetite and keen eye!

History of Mount Hope Mansion

Over the course of 208 years, Mount Hope Estate and Winery, located in Northern Lancaster County, has grown from a private residence to a flourishing historic estate featuring spectacular entertainment. Outdoor festivals, indoor theater and a Victorian wine shop provide something for everyone 365 days of the year.

Mount Hope began as the summer home for four generations of the Grubb family, an early American iron master family who found their way from England seeking their fortune. The patriarch of the family, Peter Grub II, began purchasing the properties that were to become the Estate in 1779.

The house itself was built in 1800-1805 by Peter’s son, Henry Bates Grubb. It was designed in a classic Federal style and originally featured only 10 rooms. At the same time, the formal gardens surrounding the Mansion were created which continues to exist this day.

Daisy Elizabeth Brooke Grubb (1850-1936) was the last member of the Grubb family to reside at Mount Hope. It was she, in 1895, who enlarged the manor home to an elaborate 32-room Mansion.

Miss Daisy passed away in 1936 and Mount Hope was subdivided and sold. It passed through several owners until December 1979 when the estate was purchased by Chuck Romito, who envisioned it as a place where award-winning, quality wines were produced and sold. Vineyards were planted, wines were made and Mount Hope Estate & Winery opened for business in 1980.

13th Annual BrewFest at Mount Hope Estates on the Grounds of Mount Hope Estate & Winery. Fill your sampling glass with ales and ciders from over 50 brewers from across the country, while enjoying live music, various merchants, and complimentary food!

The BrewFest at Mount Hope offers guests a variety of food options throughout the festival grounds, free!

Please note that there are a few booths with items that have additional costs, which will be clearly marked in the BrewFest Program.

The BrewFest offers top-notch entertainers to provide the perfect backdrop on three stages throughout the festival!

BrewFest welcomes a variety of merchants to the festival offering everything from food goods to beer merchandise. Throughout your day of beer tasting, check out a wide array of novelty tee shirts, unique hot sauces and marinades, flavorful cigars, re-purposed bottle crafts and more!

Waterfront at Silver Birches

Imagine what George and Rachel Singer thought in 1926 as they watched their farm, circa 1904, turn into a lake. By 1929 they determined that there would be a need for more tourism lodging and decided to build a fourteen bedroom inn complete with dining room and kitchen capable of serving a full house and providing three meals a day. George Singer was not only a farmer and innkeeper but he also had a significant logging business in the area which was a growing concern so Rachel called upon her sister Marjorie Ehrhardt to assist with the inn. In 1943 Marjorie and George Ehrhardt purchased Silver Birches. The business continued to grow through the years and more land was acquired. The original 1904 farmhouse and barn were converted to more lodging for the sprawling resort. Before long the second Ehrhardt generation, Jerry and Alice joined the business. Alice and Jerry had three sons, Eric, Steve, and Craig. By the mid 1980’s all three boys who grew up on property had completed their education with concentration in hospitality. In 1995, seeing a need to cater to large weddings and events in this beautiful setting, they further expanded the restaurant business by adding the large Waterfront Banquet Center. By 2015, three generations of Ehrhardt’s had put in seventy-two years building the family business. But it was time to further evolve for the Ehrhardt’s. Eric Ehrhardt and Justin Genzlinger put their heads together and devised a way for the growing Genzlinger family of businesses to acquire Ehrhardt’s. With the acquisition came the passion of the Genzlinger’s of historic preservation. The name of the business became Silver Birches. The vision was to preserve the vintage lakeside resort but bring a new level of aesthetics to the property. 2016 saw a major renovation to the buildings and restaurant while preserving the original farmhouse and outbuildings but updating the restaurant, now known as The Dock. The Ehrhardt family has continued to work and consult with the Genzlinger’s to enhance this beautiful gem on the shores of Wallenpaupack. Everything old is new again.

Blue, Brews & BBQ

Mack has worked or shared the stage with a list of contemporary blues heavyweights, including The Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Dickey Betts and the late David Honeyboy Edwards. He is currently a member of the Harlem Blues Project.

You’ll also ride past the generating station by the hydroelectric dam and waters of Lake Wallenpaupack!

Waterfront at Silver Birches

Imagine what George and Rachel Singer thought in 1926 as they watched their farm, circa 1904, turn into a lake. By 1929 they determined that there would be a need for more tourism lodging and decided to build a fourteen bedroom inn complete with dining room and kitchen capable of serving a full house providing three meals a day. George Singer was not only a farmer and innkeeper but he also had a significant logging business in the area which was a growing concern so Rachel called upon her sister Marjorie Ehrhardt to assist with the inn. In 1943 Marjorie and George Ehrhardt purchased Silver Birches. The business continued to grow through the years and more land was acquired. The original 1904 farmhouse and barn were converted to more lodging for the sprawling resort. Before long the second Ehrhardt generation, Jerry and Alice joined the business. Alice and Jerry had three sons, Eric, Steve, and Craig. By the mid 1980’s all three boys who grew up on property had completed their education with concentration in hospitality. In 1995, seeing a need to cater to large weddings and events in this beautiful setting, they further expanded the restaurant business by adding the large Waterfront Banquet Center. By 2015 three generations of Ehrhardt’s had put in seventy-two years building the family business. But it was time to further evolve for the Ehrhardt’s. Eric Ehrhardt and Justin Genzlinger put their heads together and devised a way for the growing Genzlinger family of businesses to acquire Ehrhardt’s. With the acquisition came the passion of the Genzlinger’s of historic preservation. The name of the business again became Silver Birches. The vision was to preserve the vintage lakeside resort but bring a new level of aesthetics to the property. 2016 saw a major renovation to the buildings and restaurant while preserving the original farmhouse and outbuildings but updating the restaurant, now known as The Dock. The Ehrhardt family has continued to work and consult with the Genzlinger’s to enhance this beautiful gem on the shores of Wallenpaupack. Everything old is new again.

Motown Madness, Disco Fever and a Little Rock & Roll featuring Déjà vu

You rocked on the rails. Now let’s rock on the dance floor with the stylish and versatile Déjà vu duo. They’ve performed at the Trump Plaza and other casinos in Atlantic City, and it’s an opening act for major artists. Whether it’s cheek-to-cheek slow dancing, or shakin’ your booty, they’ve got the music for you!

Lake Tobias Wildlife Park – Since 1965 Lake Tobias Wildlife Park has been fascinating patrons with its wild, exotic animals and adventure-seeking safari tours. Nestled in the quiet countryside, Lake Tobias resounds with the sight and sounds of the jungles and grasslands of six continents. Animals, reptiles and birds from around the world can be found here.

Our wildlife park is both a zoo and a functioning farm. Employees work the 300 acres of farmland to grow food that feeds the hoofed stock. Some of our animals roam freely throughout the park, such as chickens, peacocks, and guineas. Lake Tobias also offers a variety of shows and exhibitions designed to educate and entertain visitors. Patrons often enjoy getting a real-life glimpse of what it’s like to manage and sustain a large wildlife park.

Hundreds of animals reside along 50 acres of exhibits and displays at our wildlife park. These exhibits include African lions, American black bears, baboons, Bengal tigers, monkeys, ostriches, kangaroos, American alligators, pythons, tortoises, llamas, camels, alpacas, zebras, and more. The lions, bears, tigers, and baboons are housed in some of our most spacious, exciting, and recently renovated exhibits. The reptile and exotics building isn’t just home to snakes and lizards; it also houses many other animals such as critically-endangered tamarins, exotic marmosets, tropical birds, a sloth, lemurs, and a few surprises!

The petting zoo allows visitors to feed and pet goats, alpacas, camels, and llamas. At the Reptiles & Exotics Facility, you can see eye-opening presentations on fascinating creatures and even touch an alligator if you dare. The feeding of alligators is one of our more popular attractions. This takes place at the outdoor alligator exhibit on Sundays at approximately 4 p.m., provided the alligators feel warm enough to feed.

Patrons can explore the park at their leisure to learn and be entertained by hundreds of creatures. Visitors should allocate about one hour to see the different exhibits.

Safari Tours – The main attraction at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park. Specially designed, open-air cruisers take you across 150 acres of rolling hills where you’ll see herds of wild and exotic animals from around the world. Tour guides travel with you through pasture land and wooded areas giving expert information on the various species and their habitats. Approximately 500 head of mammals and flightless birds, which may vary daily, are on the tour. You will be amazed at how close you will come to these animals. Please note: Children under 13 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Food and souvenirs are available for purchase.

Situated in the beautiful surroundings of Knoebels Amusement Resort, there is something for everyone! More than 385 craft vendors and over 38 food vendors! Rides will be open each day. Open rides vary each of the four days of the festival.

Knoebels Amusement Resort is a family-owned and operated amusement park, picnic grove, and campground in Elysburg, Pennsylvania. It is and has been America’s largest free-admission park for 91 years of operation. Whether you’re just hitting a few rides or plan on staying all day, we have a number of plans and ticket options for you or your group. Best of all, admission into the park is free!

March 7, 1775, John Penn, Governor, signs deed transferring 292 1/4 acres of land to John Salter. The land, known as “Peggy’s Farm,” would later become Knoebels Grove. The land passed from owner to owner until 1828, when the Reverend Henry Hartman Knoebel bought the land for $931. The Reverend Knoebel had a grandson who bore his name. It was this younger Knoebel who first envisioned the land’s recreational potential. July 4, 1926, Knoebels Amusement Resort is born. The park’s first attractions included the Crystal Pool, a merrygo-round and a few food stands. From 1930 to 2015 rides, arcades, a bandshell, mini golf and much more has been added to the park. The Petting Zoo opens in 1954.

Knoebels campground opens in 1963 with nine campsites and as of today has over 600. In 1997, Lake Glory campground is purchased.

Knoebels has been hit by several major storms and had major flooding. In 1972, Tropical Storm Agnes flooded the park. The park was flooded again in 2006 with 90% of the park submerged. It took 4 ½ days and 11,000 manhours to open the park and flooded once again in 2011 from Tropical Storm Lee.

In 1981, the first Covered Bridge Arts & Crafts Festival is held at Knoebels.

In 2007, Three Ponds Golf Course is purchased and in 2016, Knoebels celebrates their 90th Anniversary and opens The Nickle Plate Bar & Grill at the Three Ponds Golf Course.

November 2018, Richard “Dick” Knoebel was inducted into the IAAPA Hall of Fame. The IAAPA Hall of Fame honors individuals for their significant and lasting contributions to the worldwide attractions industry.
