Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation
No part of the 19th, 20th, or 21st Century has touched Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation's 112 acres. Here, the farm and behavior of its workers are straight from the mid to late 1700s, immersing visitors in a living-history book focused on Pennsylvania's past and the United States' earliest days. A tour of the grounds reveals an old farmhouse, a blacksmith, and many animals, including cows, sheep, and horses. Each year might bring new residents—such as young lambs—as well as fresh crops from flax to buckwheat.
Period costumes help workers keep up an atmosphere of authenticity, as does the plantation's lack of heated buildings, which means the whole operation shuts down during cold winter months. When the weather's not chilly, the plantation also hosts educational programs with hands-on activities that let children and adults experience life on a farm from the 1700s.
