As the last remaining "great country estate" in the Bronx Pelham Bay Park, Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum's mission is to create a vibrant site through the preservation, restoration and interpretation of the property and grounds for the benefit of the public throughout the New York City metro region and beyond.
