In 1935, Philadelphia architect Richardson Brognard Okie was hired to design the Manor House and outbuildings. Okie, well known as a Colonial Revival architect, was hired. Okie based his design on four major sources: Penn’s letters and inventories of Pennsbury, archaeological evidence, comparison with other buildings dating to Penn’s period, and Okie’s own expertise of colonial architecture.
