Join us on Saturday, May 29th for a discussion by local historian Chris Reardon as he presents an in-depth look at the evolution of hunting and military arms from the beginning of European settlement in the Delaware Valley, to the Valley's impact on the arms used as the eastern settlements push westward. There will be a small colonial muster. In colonial times, a muster was the gathering of local farmers to drill, work, and socialize with good food and music. The muster will include long rifle demonstrations, fire starting, hearth cooking as well as farm chores and our farm animals.

The Plantation’s hours are 11 to 4 with the last admission at 3. Admission is $10 for adults, $6 for children ages 4 to 12. Children under age 4 are free. The Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation is an independent, non-profit 18th century living history farm museum located within Ridley Creek State Park. It is most easily reached via the park’s Route 3 entrance just west of Newtown Square. Visit to learn more about this and other events.

As always, COVID safety measures will be in place, and masks that cover your nose and mouth will be required.
