We are so pleased that we have now installed two interpretive signs! One is at the location of the mill that gave Pennypacker Mills its name, across Route 73 from the site's main entrance.  It includes a 1900s photograph of the building as well as the background story of the mill's history.  The second is near the Revolutionary War monument adjacent to the site's entrance.  One side bears a colorized, hand-drawn map of the property as it was in 1900, with descriptive text.  The other side relates to the site's Revolutionary War history.
​     It is thanks to the support of our Friends and benefactors that we have been able to get this far.  Additional signs are planned - two related to the historically important landscaping at the site, which was designed by Thomas Meehan & Sons, so we still need your support (see below).
