Visit Pottsgrove Manor every Sunday in August to bring history to life with hands-on learning and fun!
Discover a different history trade or skill every Sunday in August at Pottsgrove Manor! Our staff and historic interpreters invite visitors of all ages to join in the hands-on learning and find out how history is still alive today. See if you can stand the heat of the kitchen to help the cook prepare dishes over the hearth. Tour the kitchen garden to realize how the plants can be used for food, flavor, and medicine. Touch and feel the different kind of textiles people made and used in the 18th century and try your hand at making a few. Ask the gunsmith or the hornsmith about their period trades. Spinning, tape weaving, sewing, and more promise to get the whole family involved. Plus, colonial toys and games, which run each week, complete the 18th century fun. The Living History activities will vary week by week, so be sure to check our website (www.montcopa.org/pottsgrovemanor) or call Pottsgrove Manor (610-326-4014) to discover what will be happening on the Sundays you would like to visit.
Colonial ironmaster John Potts’ 1752 manor house will also be open for tours during the day. Our current exhibit, Good Night at the Manor, uncovers the nighttime routines of both the Potts family and their household staff. Visitors will also be able to shop at the manor’s museum store for colonial games, books, and unique gifts. Visit Pottsgrove Manor start living history today!
