Crisp breezes, falling leaves, and Living History at Pottsgrove Manor are sure signs of autumn. Join in the history at “Fall into Fun” on Saturday October 14th from 11-3pm to have your chance to experience the seasonal routines of 18th century life.
Learn about the process of making apple butter with the help of a historic interpreter. Check out spinning and try out hands-on activities such as stuffing a new mattress and make-and-take crafts with our friendly staff and volunteers. Dip your own candle and play a wide range of colonial games. Feel the heat of the hearth as our cooks prepare a meal in our 18th century reproduction kitchen. Visitors can also learn about the economic, social, and historical differences between the 13 colonies as 7th-8th grade students from Pottsgrove Middle School display their project, “Selling Colonial America.” Vote on which colony you would like to live in during the event and tour colonial ironmaster John Potts’ 1752 manor house.
Our current exhibit, Rise and Shine at the Manor, delves into the daily morning routines of both the Potts family and their household staff. Additionally, visitors can browse our Museum Shop for unique gifts, books, and 18th century reproduction items. With autumn weather approaching, now is the time to “Fall into Fun” at Pottsgrove Manor!
This program welcomes all ages, and there is a suggested $2.00 donation per person for this event.
