Pennsbury Manor is a reconstruction of William Penn’s country estate set on 43 picturesque acres along the Delaware River in Morrisville, PA. As the only site in the nation dedicated to preserving the historical significance of William Penn, Pennsbury Manor is here to bring the past into the present by telling the stories of the colonists, servants, enslaved people, and Native Americans who lived on this land. We consider ourselves stewards of the past – bringing history to life through a variety of cultural and educational programming and events.
The Manor House is furnished with an outstanding collection of late 17th-century furniture and objects, while the outbuildings contain reproductions that allow visitors to experience history through demonstrations and hands-on activities. Our gardens contain heritage plants, and our stables house the resident farm animals who represent their colonial counterparts. Join us for one of our “Sundays at Pennsbury” events, offered April through October, where you can watch our colonial craftspeople demonstrate their skills in open hearth cooking, joynery, and blacksmithing. Other programs feature our gardens and stables and their roles in colonial life.
Pennsbury Manor is administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission with the assistance of The Pennsbury Society, a non-profit support organization.
