Our guide was fully knowledgeable about the Packer family. We learned how he amassed his fortune and spent his life in Mauch chauch . Truly worth the price to see how an 1800’s empire was built.

Yes, there is a significant incline. Some of it steps, some sidewalk. The mansion sits high on a hill overlooking the town.
