On Wednesday, July 18 the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation will offer its first ever “Wednesday Evening at the Farm” with a special presentation by local historian, Keith Lockhart.
Take a trip through Delaware County 100 years ago when postcards were the rage! The program will take place in the Plantation’s colonial era wagon barn.
At 7 PM Lockhart will present a program featuring his prized collection of Delaware County postcards. Lockhart’s collection is considered the largest of its kind in the region.
During the evening the Plantation farmhouse and the kitchen garden will be available for tours.
Demonstrations taking place include textile making and long rifle firing. Of course, the Plantation’s farm animals will be around for viewing.
Closing time is 9 PM.
Admission is $5 per person. Children under 4 are free.
The Plantation is located in Ridley Creek State Park and is easily reached via Routes 3, 352, 252 or Providence Road.
