Discover the trades and skills of 18th century men and gentlemen at Pottsgrove Manor on Saturday, June 16th, from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
Celebrate the history of fatherhood at Pottsgrove Manor! Learn about our colonial ancestors and the skills needed by men in the 18th century. Did you know that in Colonial America, men did jobs that people today might not always associate with masculinity? Uncover how the cook would prepare complex Georgian meals for the Potts family in the reconstructed kitchen. Get your hands dirty with the gardener to tend the many plants for food and medicine in the kitchen garden. Join the tailor to construct finely fitted and flattering clothing for the gentlemen in your life. Historic interpreters will be demonstrating their skills and offering hands-on learning all day. Complete your day by enjoying 18th century lawn games that the whole family can appreciate. Let Pottsgrove Manor's staff and volunteers help transform your modern man into a colonial gentleman!
Tours of the manor will also be available throughout the day. Explore Pottsgrove Manor's new exhibit, "Good Night at the Manor," to uncover the evening routines of the Potts family as well as their household staff. Tours last between 45 to 60 minutes. The museum shop will also be open, full of unique reproduction items, books, and toys for all to enjoy. Find pint glasses, history books, tavern puzzles, and more to make your Father's Day gift truly historic!
This program welcomes all ages and is rain or shine! There is a suggested $2.00 donation for the event.
