Bed and Breakfast on the Park
Table Of Contents
We would like to invite you to come to Reading, PA, to relax in our gracious hospitality with Victorian style at Bed and Breakfast on the Park. Thank you for considering our Bed and Breakfast. We're looking forward to your visit!
Bed and Breakfast on the Park is appointed with antiques and family heirlooms and the mansion retains its original plaster ceiling medallions, woodwork, parlor chandeliers and second floor landing chandelier.
Built in 1887, the Mould mansion was built for Jonathan and Julia (Bell) Mould. A broadly noteworthy figure in Reading and Berks County, Jonathan owned and operated a successful dry goods store, The Busy Bee, at 645 Penn Street. In addition, he served as director of Farmers National Bank and Neversink Bank, was a member of the Reading Fair buildings committee and a member of the 175th Anniversary Celebration committee in 1923. In 1911, Jonathan and Julia presented the Pagoda and ten acres of land surrounding it to the City of Reading.
Accommodations include an extended continental breakfast featuring homemade breads and pastries, free wireless, cable TV, air conditioning, and off-street parking.
