Postcard of Schwenksville

Greetings from Schwenksville

 

March 5th until January 30, 2022

 

This exhibit will feature 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.  That was the heyday of the Perkiomen Railroad which at one time boasted four trips a day to bring both people and freight to the area.  One of the major attractions was the Perkiomen Creek.

 

The exhibit is located in the two second floor galleries, and is included on all tours.
