Living History Sundays at Pottsgrove Manor

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Pottsgrove Manor.

Pottsgrove Manor’s living history volunteers, dressed in colonial period clothing, will be living life the the 18th century way during Living History Sundays on Aug. 14, 21, and 28, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Come spend a casual summer Sunday afternoon at historic Pottsgrove Manor and enjoy the 18th century surroundings as volunteers demonstrate colonial trades and pastimes. 

Activities may include needlework, tape weaving, hornsmithing, cooking, and more. 

Visitors can watch, learn, and even join in! Activities will vary from week to week, so call ahead or check the site’s webpage at to find out what will be offered each day.

A donation of $2 per person is suggested for this program. 

Guests can also tour the manor house, see the museum’s current exhibit, “Potts & Family: Colonial
Consumers,” and shop in the museum.

The “Colonial Consumers” exhibit can also be viewed during a guided tour of Pottsgrove Manor during regular museum hours now through Nov. 6. 

Regular museum hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. 

Tours are given on the hour. The last tour of the day begins at 3 p.m. The site is closed Mondays and major holidays. Groups of ten or more should preregister by calling 610-326-4014.
