ABOUT THE MATHER HOMESTEAD
The Mather Homestead was built in 1778 and owned by the Mather family through seven generations, until 2017 when it was donated to The Mather Homestead Foundation thanks to the generosity of the McPherson family. The Mather Homestead is known for its important role during the Revolutionary War and also as the home of Stephen Tyng Mather, the founder and first Director of the National Park Service.
