The Mill Grove Mansion and surround bird sanctuary are a hidden gem in Montgomery County. This is where John James Audubon first lived in the United States. You can walk through the mansion and when you're finished sit on the wide porch and look across the lawan toward the Perkiomen Creek. The grounds have several hiking trails and there is... More

My 7year old daughter and I went to the Audubon House while other family members were at an event at the nearby expo center. She had seen some of Audubon's drawings in her science book (in a section on nature journaling), and was excited to find out that we could visit his first home in America. I did not know... More

This is a beautiful park. There is a self-guided tour of the home of John James Audubon with his original water colors and books displayed. There are several nature trails which are lovely - we did not get to do the birding trails and/or nature trails - but will definitely return to do them.

The house at Mill Grove was the first home of John James Audubon in America. He lived there for a few years, during which he met and married his wife. He also became interested in documenting the native birds and animals while living here; this would later translate into his project "Birds of America." The house is preserved as a... More

We like to come here and just hike the grounds. the building has some art and stuffed animals - fun for kids, with a really small gift shop. Mostly we just walk in the woods.
