Twelfth Night Tours
Dec 13 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Pottsgrove Manor announces the opening of our holiday tour, Twelfth Night, which runs from November 24, 2017, to January 6, 2018, during our normal museum hours.

 

The manor will be decorated with holly and greenery to celebrate the winter season as lavish dessert displays alongside party games and activities will transport visitors back to the 18th century. Guided tours throughout the house will focus on the special activities of both the Potts family, their holiday guests, and the household servants and slaves. See the Holly Man festively adorned to greet the guests of the Potts and learn about colonial parlor games such as Snapdragon. Experience how household servants prepared for the holiday season as the special foods, decorations, and traditions required their attention. Children can also make a holly craft they can take home to bring a sense of history to your holiday. Discover the origin of some favorite winter traditions and discover new ones too!

 

Visitors can also check out the museum shop to find the perfect holiday gift, history book, or unique 18th century reproduction item. A donation of $2.00 per person is suggested for this event. Pottsgrove Manor is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00AM-4:00PM and Sunday from 1:00-4:00PM with the last tour of the day beginning at 3:00PM. The site is closed Mondays, as well as December 24th and December 31st.
