Join historian Dan Graham and uncover the story of the land between the time of William Penn to John Potts during this lecture at Pottsgrove Manor on Saturday, November 4, 2017 beginning at 1:00 PM.

 

Over 70 years passed from the time William Penn received the charter for Pennsylvania in 1681 to when John Potts began constructing his manor home in 1752. Dig more into the history of the land where Pottstown now sits, its origins, and how it changed throughout time with iron historian Dan Graham at Pottsgrove Manor during our special lecture “Penn to Potts: A Convenient Tract of Land.” Iron history lovers, local history enthusiasts, and those who want to learn more about what people were doing in colonial Pennsylvania will all enjoy this fantastic speaker. Following the lecture, mingle and ask Dan Graham your questions. Visit Pottsgrove Manor to reveal the past of places that are familiar to us today!

 

Additionally, visitors can take guided tours of the manor and learn more about the Potts family and household through our current exhibit “Rise and Shine at the Manor.” Our Museum Shop is also open and full of unique gifts, 18th century replicas, books, and more!

 

This program welcomes all ages, and there is a suggested $2.00 donation per person for this event.

 

Pottsgrove Manor is located at 100 West King Street near the intersection of King Street and Route 100, just off Route 422 near the Carousel at Pottsgrove and Manatawny Green Miniature Golf Course, in Pottstown, Pennsylvania.
