Accomac Pop Up Dinner at the Watt Mansion in Lancaster held on November 2nd was a huge success – and was our second pop up dinner held. We could not have asked for a more unique, cozy setting. The downstairs livingrooms of the gorgeous mansion were transformed into an intimate dining space for everyone to enjoy. Guests enjoyed a 5 course meal paired with the delicious wine of Tamanend Winery. Thank you to all that attended!

A brief history of The Watt Mansion

“Roslyn” was built in 1896 by celebrated Lancaster architect, C. Emlen Urban.  Mr. Urban was also the designer of many city properties including, but not limited to, Central Market, the Griest Building, Watt & Shand (the soon-to-be convention center), and the Theological Seminary.  This beautiful home is listed on the Lancaster County Historical Sites Register as a “Significant Level I” site, meaning the property is “exceptional” or of top importance.

This baronial mansion was designed for Peter T. Watt [1850-1921], one of the co-founders of the Watt & Shand department store in Penn Square. Mr. Watt presented the property to his wife, Laura, on her birthday. The property remained owned by members of the Watt family for over 70 years.

Roslyn is a two and one half story stone Chateauesque house, with irregular bays, stepped gables, round turrets having dormers and conical roofs, six chimneys, balustraded portico with swag motif, porte cochere, interior stained glass by Rudy Brothers of Pittsburgh. – Source
