Take a Tour & Explore Local History!
May 19 @ 10:00 am – 10:00 am

Looking for an interesting place to visit that’s close to home? Pennypacker Mills is the answer! This historic site is open year-round for free guided tours of the home of Pennsylvania Governor Samuel Pennypacker and his family. Known for its collection of 18th and 19th century decorative arts, furnishings, personal and official documents, the story of this famous Pennsylvania family reflects the lives of those who lived here in the early 1900’s in Montgomery County.

A new exhibit, “Greetings from Schwenksville” is included on all tours and will run until January 30th, 2022.  It features images from the collection of Pennypacker Mills, showing Schwenksville and the surrounding area at the turn-of-the-twentieth century.  Some of these images were featured on postcards, stereographs and even plates.  Samuel W. Pennypacker purchased the ancestral home at Pennypacker Mills in 1900 and lived there until his death in 1916.  This was the heyday of the Perkiomen Railroad which boasted at one time four trips a day to bring both people and freight to the area.  One of the major attractions was the Perkiomen Creek.

To book a guided tour of Pennypacker Mills, call 610-287-9349 or email [email protected] in advance. All tours must be confirmed by a staff member.  Please wear a mask and social distance. Group tours are limited to 10 people maximum. The exhibit is located in the two second floor galleries.  For those unable to make it to the site or those who are interested in knowing more, our website contains an exhibit page which has a slide show component.

Hours: Tuesdays thru Saturdays: 10 am to 4 pm. Sundays: 1 to 4 pm. Closed on Mondays and County holidays. Tours take approximately 1 hour and are free, with a suggested donation of $2/person.

Pennypacker Mills is located off Route 73 (Skippack Pike) at 5 Haldeman Road, Schwenksville, PA. Operated by the Montgomery County Division of Parks, Trails & Historic Sites.

Americana Music Performed by Tom Jolin
May 22 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Tom Jolin plays traditional American music, mixing vocals with the hammer dulcimer, banjo, button accordion, and harmonica. Jolin has been a solo performer since 1978, performing a mix of traditional Americana, old timey and civil war tunes. His solo performances are loaded with humor… sometimes intentionally. Fun for the whole family.

Our presenter will be located on the mansion porch. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on, wear a mask and social distance on the lawn.
