The reconstructed country estate of Pennsylvania's founder, William Penn, was built in 1939 and is beautifully situated on 43 acres along the Delaware River, just 24 miles north of Philadelphia. Visitors can experience 17th-century life through the furnished manor house, stables, bake and brew house, outbuildings, and formal and kitchen gardens. The site comes alive with costumed interpreters and period farm animals. Programs include the Colonial Crossroads Festival, Holly Nights, and Sundays at Pennsbury. Visitor services include tours, exhibits, an orientation film, and a museum store.
