Tour of Archibald Johnston Mansion in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

We visited and toured the Archibald Johnston Mansion in Bethlehem ahead of their September 9 event where you, too, can tour this historical estate! Join us as John and Joy of the Archie Project guide us through the house of Bethlehem’s first mayor.

We encountered an absolute treasure trove of local history, a few heated surprises, and information on what the non-profit plans to do with the property if they can get enough support from people like you!
