Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation

Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation is an 18th-century farm so authentic you’ll feel like you’ve traveled back in time. Groups will have the chance to experience what life was like in the 1770s through educational programs and activities that focus on colonial farming, clothing, and more. Go on a tour of the plantation, see barnyard animals, and have your group participate in a craft workshop! These activities are a great way for groups to learn about agriculture and regional history, while enjoying demonstrations such as weaving, spinning, candle-making, and hearth-cooking in the historical kitchen. The 112-acre working farm is a tribute to the real-life Pratt family, who lived there during the American Revolution.
