Greetings from Schwenksville is a new exhibit at Pennypacker Mills which will open on March 5th, 2021 and run until January 30th, 2022. It will feature images from the collection of Pennypacker Mills, showing Schwenksville and the surrounding area at the turn-of-the-twentieth century.
Some of these images were featured on postcards, stereographs and even plates. Samuel W. Pennypacker purchased the ancestral home at Pennypacker Mills in 1900 and lived there until his death in 1916. This was the heyday of the Perkiomen Railroad which boasted at one time four trips a day to bring both people and freight to the area. One of the major attractions was the Perkiomen Creek.
This exhibit is included on all guided tours. Call 610-287-9349 or email email@example.com to book a tour in advance. All tours must be confirmed by a staff member. Please wear a mask and social distance.
