Activity Overview

Experience this renovated, early 18th-century estate that was used as a headquarters by George Washington in 1777 and later as a seasonal home for Governor Samuel Pennypacker of Pennsylvania.

Governor Pennypacker's relatives owned the home in the 1700's, and the governor then bought it for himself in the early 20th century and filled it with articles reflecting his interests in colonial history, native American culture, and the Civil and Revolutionary wars.

Also found in the house are documents relating to the governor's family history and political career.

Things to Do

  • Appreciate the newly restored servant's area, laundry facilities and kitchen that reflect the life of a privileged family from the early 1900's.
  • Take a stroll around the surrounding acres and have a picnic on the lawn.
  • Tours and hands-on educational programs are offered upon request.
