Giving Program

November 02, 2020

For the month of November, we will be collecting dry food and canned goods to give back to our community. We are asking our daily visitors to bring a donation for our dry pantry and leave it in our corn crib (the little red building across from the garage) near the entrance. We will be delivering all of your non-perishable donations to the Colonial Neighborhood Council in Conshohocken. Thank you so much for being a part of this 'giving back' community program.

A Visit with Santa

December 05, 2021

 We are very sad to announce that due to Covid-19 guidelines, we will not be able to hold our beloved Santa event this year. We are looking forward to bringing back this wonderful family tradition in 2021.


The Highlands will be full of Christmas spirit and fun on Sunday December 5th 2021 from 2 to 4 when Santa and Mrs Claus return for their annual visit. This year, guests will be welcomed by carolers from Plymouth Whitemarsh High School. There will be plenty of sweet treats to eat, trains to play with and unique crafts to create. Parents, bring your camera's to capture the time your children will spend speaking to Santa and listening to Mrs Claus' reading of The Night Before Christmas. There will also be a raffle of some wonderful gifts. The Cookie Queen of Lafayette Hill and the Mythical Wonderland  will both be setting up their shops for the event as well. This is the perfect family afternoon to fill you with the joys of the season. This special event has limited availability so please email to make your reservations today! Cost is $15 per person/child for non-members and $10 per member. Follow us on Instagram @thehighlandsmansion
