This week, Strawberry Mansion had a special visitor- a very sweet, friendly cat with no collar or chip. She's won all our hearts and a friend of the mansion took her home to care for, but we're wondering if someone out there is looking for her. If you live in or near 19121/19132 and are missing a small female cat (around 6-8 months old), dm us a description of your cat and we'll see if they match!

We just published the first installment in our new Black History Month series, Freedom on Trial! This series aims to highlight a group of men and women who share one special connection to the Mansion: they were clients of the house’s first owner, William Lewis, in his work as an abolitionist lawyer. Each person in this series sought freedom from enslavement via the law, and Lewis counseled or represented them in this quest. Today we look at Ben, a 19th century Philadelphian who won his freedom in court not once, but twice! Read the full story using the QR code or at https://tinyurl.com/freedomontrial
