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!

The Making History Greater series features scholars, authors, and historians who are currently working on telling new stories about the complexity of our region’s history. Black October:  The 1918 Influenza Epidemic in Montgomery County will take place on Thursday, October 25, 2018. The evening will begin at 6:30 with a social gathering and light refreshments.
