    Visit Pennypacker Mills for a fascinating look at Pennsylvania Governor Samuel Pennypacker’s family history focusing the arrival of the first paternal ancestor in America in 1698 through to Samuel’s generation. Pennypacker’s passion for family history included artifacts that related to his family as well as silhouettes of his grandparents, signatures of all of the men in his direct line, pieces of furniture, personal items and of course the genealogy and family Bibles. His research took him to Holland and Germany and correspondence with as many relatives as he could find. This exhibit is included on all tours of the mansion. All ages; free; suggested donation $2 per person.

    Pennypacker Mills is the home of Pennsylvania Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker (1903-1907) and his family.
