Take a Trip Back in Time at the Peter Wentz Farmstead

Take a Trip Back in Time at the Peter Wentz Farmstead

Are you looking for a fun family outing? Consider a visit to the Peter Wentz Farmstead in Worcester Township, where you’ll learn what life was like in the Revolutionary Period. Built in 1758, this historic property served as the headquarters for George Washington in the Fall of 1777.

Now owned by Montgomery County, the home has been impressively restored and furnished to reflect life in the 1770s. The grounds include a working farm and reconstructed barn, shining a light on farming practices in the eighteenth century.

Guided tours of the home are available, and an archaeology exhibit is housed onsite. Among the special events offered are nature walks, outreach programs, and classes on colonial craft making (now virtual). Advance registration for tours is required.
