  • Phelps Mansion has been preserved by the efforts of a woman's society called the Monday Club. Just because the society transformed to become the Phelps Mansion society, do not believe that the women's society doesn't have a presence in the house. The renovations, bath room modifications and even the ball room addition carry the influence of this 1800s society into the Twenty-First Century. The volunteers who guide the walks through the house have been well groomed. My guide has just finished her doctoral thesis for a history degree from Binghamton University, so Chelsea could really handle almost any question raised by guests. If you love American paintings from the Hudson River School era, you'll love that the Monday club decorated the drawing rooms and dressing rooms with unmentioned members of the school. The club bought the house for ten thousand dollars around 1905 and literally gave to the house a priceless number of rare objects. I hope to soon catch a concert in the ball room, which looks like a chamber with great acoustics.
  • Absolutely loved this mansion. Our guide was so informative and we learned so much about the house, its owners and builders. It was our first visit to Binghamton and this was a great place to learn about the history of the town. I would highly recommned it.
  • Very knowledgeable tour guide and very great architectural structures. We all had many questions and they were all answered.
