Pennypacker Mills is the early 20th-century Colonial Revival mansion of former Pennsylvania Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker. The house is situated on a rural 170-acre site that once was a working dairy farm. Inside, see original furnishings, family memorabilia, and history on Pennsylvania, Native Americans, early immigrants, religious groups, and the Civil War. In 1777, General Washington and 10,000 Continentals encamped on the property before and after the Battle of Germantown.

Visitors may take a free guided tour of the house where changing exhibits are offered throughout the year. A visit to the Museum Shop is also included on all tours. Groups can arrange for hands-on education programs such as the General Store, Child Labor, Artifact program, Laundry, Games, and Kitchen Gadgets. Picnic grounds are available. Fee: $5/child. Please call to arrange group tours.
