At Bed and Breakfast on the Park, you'll be surrounded by the warm character of this historic Queen Anne Victorian Mansion in its tranquil park-like setting. Appointed with antiques and family heirlooms, 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.
