Discover the Timeless Elegance of Disston Mansion

Designed by the renowned architect Edwin Forrest Durang, famed for his exquisite church designs, the Disston Mansion stands as a testament to opulence and historical grandeur. Originally the residence of Albert Disston, of the illustrious Philadelphia-based Disston Saw Company, this architectural marvel was constructed at a staggering cost of over $150,000—a sum equivalent to an astounding $45,000,000 in today’s currency.

As one of the most magnificent industrialist mansions still gracing the city of Philadelphia, Disston Mansion remains nearly 100% intact, preserving its architectural splendor. The current stewards, Father Divine’s Mission, have meticulously maintained the mansion’s original features: marble flooring, cathedral trim, hand-carved oak, 18-foot doors, intricate tiles, gold leaf mantels, crystal chandeliers, stained glass windows, hand-painted mural ceilings, lavish banquet rooms, and an impressive auditorium.

This historic gem is proudly listed on the Philadelphia Historical Commission Register and the Historic American Buildings Survey, ensuring its legacy for generations to come. Experience the allure of a bygone era and immerse yourself in the timeless beauty of Disston Mansion.
