1826

March 1st, 2012

John Watson visited Pennsbury and sketched the Bake-and-Brew House where the Crozier family lived. He also recorded an oral history from Pennsbury’s current owner, Robert Crozier, and from his mother, Rosamond Crozier, who had been living there since the 1780’s. They told Watson that many people took relics from the site. Like many other visitors, Watson took away some of the house as a souvenir of his visit: 

“I got the carved capital or ornament…of the Pilastre [column] at the Front Door- a gift from R Crozier.”

(John Watson, 1826)
