Visit Grey Towers, Virtually


The US Forest Service and the Grey Towers Heritage Association are excited to announce a new web-based virtual tour of Grey Towers National Historic Site that can now be viewed at www.greytowers.org.

The virtual tour, provided by the US Forest Service, takes visitors through the landscaped gardens of the 102-acre estate and the 44-room French Chateu-esque stone mansion that once was home to forester, eminent conservationist and Pennsylvania Governor Gifford Pinchot.

Supported on the website of the Grey Towers Heritage Association, the virtual tour gives a glimpse of spaces not usually shown to the public on the daily tours, such as the upper floors of the mansion, which serve today as a conservation conference center. It also captures the beautiful views from the terraced lawns, the manicured gardens and interesting landscape features.

“Although we would recommend an actual visit to the Historic Site, the virtual tour is a good way to see what we have to offer and plan your visit,” said Robert Remillard, GTHA Board member and a US Forest Service retiree and volunteer. The virtual tour is intended to entice visitors to take a guided tour or attend an educational program at Grey Towers. Or it can be used to supplement a visit to the site.

Grey Towers was home to the Pinchot family and today is managed by the US Forest Service with support from its partners as a natural resource conservation education and leadership development center. Interpretive tours share the story of what the Pinchot family accomplished and how they impacted American’s lives. Its most well-known inhabitant, Gifford Pinchot, founded and served as first chief of the US Forest Service and was Governor of Pennsylvania in the 1920s and the 1930s. This year marks Pinchot’s 150th birthday commemoration and a variety of public programs are planned to call attention to his many accomplishments.
