  1. Harvest Happenings at Pottsgrove Manor

    October 20, 2018, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM @ Pottsgrove Manor

    Explore the exciting harvest activities of autumn that the entire family can enjoy. Crank the wheel of the cider press to turn an apple into a special seasonal drink. Help stir the apple butter as it cooks into a delicious treat over the open fire. Discover how the flax harvest is turned into linen and how a great wheel helps spinners transform wool into yarn. Then learn how to knit that spun yarn into something warm for the coming winter. Warm up by the kitchen hearth and see what special 18th century treats are being made from the seasonal abundance. You can also have your silhouette or miniature portrait done by artist Ruth Williams. Living History interpreters bring the past to life and invite you to join in with plenty of hands-on-history fun, perfect for every age. Plus kids can create their own free silhouette craft, a perfect take-home souvenir. Colonial games and tours of the Potts family home top off this family friendly autumn event. Rain or shine.
