Good Night at the Manor Exhibit Opening Event
Feb 24 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Be among the first to view the busy nighttime activities of 1750s Pottsgrove Manor on Saturday, February 24th, from 4-6pm! The exhibit will open with a special introduction by the exhibit’s curator, Amy Reis, at 4 pm.  This will be followed by candlelit tours of the Manor. Experience the night as the Potts family would in an immersive experience all ages will enjoy!

Sunset did not mean the end of the work day in colonial America! The site’s new exhibit will highlight the evening routines and tasks of everyone in the 1752 Manor house and answer such questions as how did they see at night before electric lights?  Visitors will learn about the many duties the servants and slaves in the house completed such as cleaning, sewing, and preparing for the next day. Nightly rituals of an elite family, such as John and Ruth Potts along with their 13 children, will be explored. Guests can learn the differences between the materials used in making fine expensive candles to the cheaper and greasy tallow candles. Participants can smell a popular bedtime tea and historic beauty ingredients, and find out if they can identify the sounds of the night common to a colonial home. Original 18th century objects such as sleep ware and lighting will be on display in the exhibit room while an interactive space allows you to figure out how far candlelight can really go. Come and discover how nighttime was anything but sleepy at Pottsgrove Manor!

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 Pottsgrove and Manatawny Green Miniature Golf Course, in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Pottsgrove Manor is operated by the Montgomery County Division of Parks, Trails, and Historic Sites.
