Holiday Tours at Pennypacker Mills
Tours of the Pennypacker mansion during the holidays are a reflection of Christmases past when shimmering glass ornaments dangled from tree branches and shiny ribbon was woven through mantle greens and around windows. Museum Shop is stocked with holiday gifts, decorations, and toys. Groups of ten or more should contact the site to schedule a group tour. All ages; free; suggested donation $2 per person.

Pennypacker Mills offers a unique opportunity to experience the pleasures of country life in the 1900's when the Governor of Pennsylvania lived across the Perkiomen Creek from the village of Schwenksville. As the private residence of Gov. Samuel W. Pennypacker, and the Pennypacker family since 1747, the historic site is filled with original antiques and artifacts that are a reflection of the Governor's interest in Pennsylvania and family history.

Tours of the mansion are free of charge year-round along with special events, exhibits, craft workshops and nature walks. The 170 acre property has picnic areas as well as a mile trail around the meadow where you might see bluebirds or butterflies that make Pennypacker Mills their home.
