The Speaker’s House, a non-profit organization located in Trappe is pleased to announce several upcoming events for our community to enjoy. If you are unfamiliar with The Speaker’s House, the historic home and surrounding land is dedicated to celebrating and preserving the heritage of Frederick Muhlenberg, first and third Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and first signer of the Bill of Rights. The first event takes place on Sunday, November 16, from 3pm – 5pm where the organization will host its annual meeting at Trinity U.C.C. Church in Collegeville. Join our community members for the latest news, including the unveiling of major recent additions to the museum’s collection, and a special exhibition of highlights from this year’s archaeology field school. Then, bring the kids to our festive, family-friendly Trappe Tree Lighting on The Speaker’s House front lawn on Wednesday, December 3, at 6:30pm (rain date December 4). Enjoy caroling, a visit from Santa, and a spectacular tree-lighting ceremony. Donations of unwrapped toys and non-perishable food items will be collected at the tree lighting. Both events are free and open to the public.
