Two Hundred years ago Chamounix Mansion was the summer retreat of the Plumstead family; 100 years ago the Mansion served as the clubhouse for the Quaker City Motor Club which promoted automobile racing along the adjacent Chamounix Speedway.

In 1964, Chamounix became the first metropolitan youth hostel in America. Today, the restored Chamounix and Carriage House continue to serve as an International Hostel and Meeting Center. Come share the welcome of Chamounix, an extraordinary Fairmount Park destination.
