Hibernia Mansion, as you see it today, reflects the changes of lifestyle and social status of its various owners for over two hundred years. Long the home of Ironmasters, it expanded with their increased prosperity. When strolling along the quiet paths through the 990-acre Hibernia County Park, or fishing on the shady banks of the Brandywine Creek, it is hard to imagine that here was once the site of a bustling iron industry, gone for over one hundred years.
The mansion is not available for rental.
