Bask in Christmas glory at Pennypacker Mills, the home of Pennsylvania’s late Governor, Samuel Pennypacker. Visit the Montgomery County home as it is decked with holiday decor for the season.
This Saturday, December 14, Pennypacker Mills presents its Christmas Open House from 2 to 8 p.m. Take in the holiday cheer and impressive decor while enjoying holiday traditions and music from the 1900s. Visit with Santa, hear from historians, indulge in traditional holiday food and say hello to the butler at the afternoon open house. Be sure to stop by the gift shop for Victorian-inspired holiday decor for your own home.
Through January 5, 2014, the home welcomes an array of Victorian holiday decorations like glass ornaments, a magnificent vintage-inspired Christmas tree, holiday greens and more.
Tour the historic site and learn about children’s toys from 100 years ago and holiday traditions that have stood the test of time. For the first time ever, visitors are invited to explore the mansion’s servant quarters which include the butler’s pantry, indoor laundry room, kitchen and the cook’s bedroom. Guests of this weekend’s open house have the opportunity to take in the Yuletide spirit that is offered on the daily tours.
Admission to both the open hour and tours are free, but a donation of $2 is suggested. Take note, Pennypacker Mills is closed on Mondays and will be closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
