Pennypacker Mills Historic Site: The serene country estate was landscaped by Thomas Meehan and Sons to highlight the Colonial Revival mansion and surrounding farmland of 170 acres. Originally constructed about 1720, the mansion was redesigned and enlarged by architect Arthur Brockie in 1901 to enhance a country gentleman’s lifestyle. Pennypacker Mills is an unusually well documented historic site with an original collection, fully furnished with antiques collected and documented by former Pennsylvania Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker reflecting his interests in early Pennsylvania history, German and Dutch settlers, native Americans, the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. The collection also includes Governor Pennypacker’s political (1903 – 1907), genealogical and personal papers. Research by appointment.
