Pottsgrove Manor Hosts Historic Lecture Saturday

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

Visit historic Pottsgrove Manor on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 1 p.m. for a talk entitled “Grist for the Mill.”

While most people know John Potts as a prominent colonial ironmaster, few realize that he also owned a number of grist mills in the area. In this program, historian Dan Graham will speak about the mills that were owned by the Potts family and their importance to the region. 

After the lecture, visitors can take a guided tour of Pottsgrove Manor and the site’s current exhibit, “Potts and Family: Colonial Consumers,” as well as shop in the museum store.

There is a suggested donation of $2 per person for the lecture.

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 begin on the hour. The last tour of the day begins at 3 p.m.

Pottsgrove Manor is located at 100 West King Street near the intersection of King Street and Route 100, just off Route 422, in Pottstown. 

Pottsgrove Manor is operated by Montgomery County under the direction of the Parks, Trails, and Historic Sites Division of the Assets and Infrastructure Department.
