Vintage Base Ball at its Best!
Jun 23 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

In the early 1840’s, base ball was a game of sportsmanship, an opportunity for camaraderie, and borrowing plays from cricket and rounders. The umpire, dressed in a frock coat and top hat, stood next to the batter, while the scorekeepers sat at a table near the first base. Such was the beginning of what we now call baseball! Come to the Mills on Sunday, June 23, from 1 to 3 pm as the Mid-Atlantic Base Ball League brings those early days of the American pastime to life with a rousing game!

What started out as an amateur game of athletics, soon became a competitive, profit making sport. New rules of play, commercial advertising, and pay for players was soon the norm. Come to the Mills, spread a blanket, and enjoy an old-fashioned game of base ball.  The Pennypacker mansion will be open for guided tours too. Both tours and the game are free.

Pennypacker Mills is operated by the Montgomery County Division of Parks, Trails & Historic Sites. Open year-round. Hours: Tuesday through Saturday: 10 am to 4 pm; Sunday: 1 to 4 pm. Closed Mondays and County holidays. For more information visit: http://www.montcopa.org/pennypackermills Telephone: 610-287-9349.

Storytime on the Mansion Porch
Jul 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

“Away We Go!”

How did you ride a bicycle in the late 1890’s? You “just straddle a saddle, then paddle and skedaddle.” The bicycle craze was huge with over a million people of all ages riding them.

 

Come to Pennypacker Mills on Friday, July 19th at 10 am for a fascinating storytelling of the Golden Age of Bicycles. Meet Morgan and Jonah, two friends who took a ride on their bicycles for what they thought was just a fun day, but it turned out to be much more.  In small towns where children like Morgan and Jonah lived, there was not much for children to do. There were no swimming pools or libraries or movie theaters. It was a time before radio and television.  Bicycles were the most fun kids could have.

 

After the storytelling, we’ll do a craft that kids can take home. Join us for this free summertime program on the porch at Pennypacker Mills!
