Aug. is Living History Sundays at Pottsgrove Manor

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

Living History is happening every Sunday in August as Pottsgrove Manor presents Living History Sundays.

Pottsgrove Manor is coming alive on August 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th for Living History Sundays. 

From 1 p.m to 4 p.m., staff and volunteers will be interpreting 18th century trades and everyday life with demonstrations and hands-on activities. 

Explore how to make butter and tape weave using box looms with period interpreters. See and smell food being prepared in the reproduction colonial kitchen. Try your hand at embroidery and needlework, and find out how to make 18th century soap. Learn about the skills needed to spin wool into yarn and more. 

In addition to the activities each week, there will be colonial games for everyone in the whole family to play with and enjoy. 

The activities will vary week by week, so be sure to check the website ( or call Pottsgrove Manor (610-326-4014) to discover what will be happening on the days you’d like to visit.

Colonial ironmaster John Potts’ 1752 manor house will also be open for tours during the day. The current exhibit, "Rise and Shine at the Manor," delves into the daily morning 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.

These programs welcomes all ages; suggested donation $2 per person. The programs will be held rain or shine!

Pottsgrove Manor is located at 100 West King Street near the intersection of King Street and Route 100, just off Route 422 near the Carousel at Pottstown and Manatawny Green Miniature Golf Course. 

Pottsgrove Manor is operated by the Montgomery County Division of Parks, Trails, and Historic Sites.
