Paths Less Traveled Tours

September 14, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$15.00
Explore the areas of Pennsbury Manor not seen on your regular tour. Visit the servant’s quarters of the Manor House and hear stories of gossip and intrigue amid the beautiful exposed wood beams. Travel down to the footprint of Pennsbury Manor and see a portion of the original foundation from 1684. Learn of the personalities involved with rebuilding this important historical home and you decide – should the house have been built? Ascend the stairs of the Kitchen House, which was the home to many of the enslaved at Pennsbury. Find out what happened to them and if any gained their freedom. Your last stop will be the cemetery. This is your chance to pay your respects to the people who were so much a part of Pennsbury Manor. Join in a Quaker tradition of placing a sprig of rosemary on the graves of those who meant so much to a place so special. Please note that this tour involves climbing stairs and walking on uneven surfaces.
 
Tours last approximately one hour and begin at 1:00 pm, 1:30 pm, 2:00 pm, 2:30 pm, 3:00 pm and 3:30 pm. Cost is $15 per person. Pennsbury Society members get in FREE.
