Harrisburg Fort Hunter
Harrisburg (and our surrounding communities) gives our locals a lot to brag about and plenty of reasons for visitors to buy one of our Harrisburg homes for sale.

While our real estate agents help you to search for the perfect home, take a tour of the Fort Hunter Mansion and Park.

The Fort Hunter Mansion and Park sits high on a bluff looking out at the Blue Mountains and the Susquehanna River. It covers over 40 acres, and you will enjoy taking a guided tour of the beautifully restored home and gardens. Fort Hunter Mansion and Park has beautiful walking trails, picnic pavilions, and access to the Pennsylvania Canal trail. The structures include a restored barn, stables, tavern, spring house, ice house, and a charming covered bridge.

A division of the Dauphin County Parks and Recreation Department, the mansion has holiday events throughout December for both adults and children, and it offers a look back into 19th-century life in Harrisburg.

Visiting the Mansion in December is an enchanting experience. The Mansion is decked out in its most elegant holiday finery. The staff decorates the interior with fragrant fresh greens and fresh arrangements of flowers and fruit. Every mantel sports elegant décor to brighten your spirits, and you will be amazed at the magnificent décor using only natural materials donated by the Civic Committee of the Harrisburg Garden Club. Also, you can enjoy the following special events:

  • Fort Hunter Mansion Holiday Craft Sale
    Now a tradition for over 20 years, the Fort Hunter Mansion craft and art sale is a fun holiday event with locally made goods. The show offers pottery, handmade treasures, jewelry, fine art, and an array of wearables. The craft show is set up like a boutique, and it originated at the Third Street Pottery. Now at the Fort Hunter Mansion, the craft sale offers not only local pottery, but items made from wood, wire, paper, metal, clay, and felt. You can find ornaments in a wide variety of materials and designs, such as brilliantly fused glasswork or handspun fabrics.
  • Fort Hunter Mansion Annual Festival of Trees
    Do you love to see elegantly decorated Christmas trees? Fort Hunter Mansion has six Christmas trees embellished by local garden clubs. You can buy a raffle ticket to vote for your favorite tree with the prize being one of those trees!
  • Kids Only Holiday Shopping
    Do your kids need to do their holiday shopping? The mansion sets up a shop just for kids 12 years old and under. Shopper elves will help your kids pick the perfect presents from the winter wonderland, and they will even help wrap and label the gifts. All you have to do is provide your kids with spending money!
  • Dress Form Christmas Trees
    This is a unique tradition! The staff transforms dress forms by decorating them just like Christmas trees. You will be inspired by the imaginative, ingenious designs. The show is located in the Stone Stable.
