Learn a new historic skill every Sunday in August at Pottsgrove Manor’s Living History Sundays! Living history interpreters will be at Pottsgrove Manor on Sunday, August, 4, 11, 18, and 25, 2019, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Bring everyone in the family to take part in hands-on history. Take a turn to churn cream into butter. Learn how to weave colorful strings into useful tape on a loom. See the tools of the leather-smith trade in action as the hide is transformed into pouches and bags. Join the cook in the reproduction kitchen to uncover an 18th-century dish brought to life, and stroll through the kitchen garden to find the plants which colonists would use for food and medicine. Everyone can try their hand at period toys and games to complete their historical experience. Each weekend brings different historical skills to life. Check the Pottsgrove Manor website, or call 610-326-4014 to see which days you would like to visit.
Parts of the Potts family 1752 manor home will be open for tours. The Museum Shop will be open to purchase books, games, period reproduction items, and much more. This event is rain or shine and welcomes all ages. There is a suggested $2 donation per person for this event.
