Built in 1752 for the Potts family, the home showcases the elegance of early Georgian architecture and tells the history of John and Ruth Potts, their 13 children, and the paid, indentured, and enslaved people who lived and labored here.

Guided tours share the stories of successful ironmaster John Potts—the founder of Pottstown, Justice of the Peace, Judge on the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas, elected representative of both Berks and Philadelphia Counties to the Pennsylvania General Assembly—with engaging and researched interpretation of Pottsgrove Manor as the family’s home and headquarters.

Special programs, workshops, and exhibits continuously highlight the mission of Pottsgrove Manor to connect everyone to 18th-century history.  Digital resources including educational videos and online collections can be found throughout our website and social media.  Customized school, homeschool, scout, and adult group tours are available to bring history alive to any age.
