For 2016, the Friends of Pennypacker Mills (Friends) have set an ambitious goal to raise funds for a number of interpretive signs to be placed around the grounds. These signs will inform visitors about the historically interesting items that can be seen on the site.
The first of these signs will be placed in the area where the old mill, from which the property derives its name, formerly stood. This sign will inform visitors of the historical significance of the mill, and provide a photograph of the building that once stood there.
The first sign will be conceptually similar to that pictured below, although perhaps vary in size and configuration. It will cost approximately $1,000, and the Friends will pay for it out of existing funds. We hope to install several additional signs. Their cost will vary depending on their size and the amount of information they will contain. The largest of these will be at the monument near the entrance to the property. We have selected this location because a pedestrian walkway will be added to the bridge across the Perkiomen Creek in 2016. This will provide easier access to the Pennypacker Mills property from the walking trail. By informing visitors of the site’s rich history, and the story of the Pennypacker family, this sign will encourage further exploration of the property.
