Pottsgrove Manor Hosting Fall into Fun October 14
Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Pottsgrove Manor.
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 Oct. 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 pm. 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 cooks prepare a meal in an 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.
The 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 the Museum Shop for unique gifts, books, and 18th century reproduction items.
This program welcomes all ages, and there is a suggested $2.00 donation per person for this event.
Pottsgrove Manor is operated by the Montgomery County Division of Parks, Trails, and Historic Sites.
