Discover The Milestone on the River
An elegant event venue in Harrisburg, PA
The Milestone is furnished in keeping with the glamour of the early 1920's. The well-crafted interior design nods toward the architecture and styling of many turn of the century American mansions. The Milestone on the River boasts a sprawling ground floor interior which is well-positioned to host parties, celebrations, and meetings. The mansion also cradles a large lawn, copper pavilion and private courtyard to further expand its hospitality.
You're invited to stroll through the early 20th Century Tudor Revival mansion and explore the mansion's design which shares Medieval English tradition with French Eclecticism and admire for yourself its beauty and rarity.
The L-shaped property, constructed of stone from a private Chester County quarry, is deftly integrated into the urban setting. It is highlighted by the intersections of steeply pitched slate roofs; half-timbering and stucco in the projecting gabled entrance; irregular placement of ribbons of metal casement windows; and elegant groupings of decorative, double brick chimneys.
The interior is well-appointed with five fireplaces, interior hardwood and slate floors, poured concrete steps, arched passageways of carved limestone, white cypress paneling, and commissioned ironwork from the studios of master craftsman, Samuel Yellin. While other examples of similar architecture still remain along Front Street, few are as grand and graceful as the Milestone on the River.
