Our first interpretive sign has been installed 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 its history. The Friends are proud to have provided the funding for this sign. A photo of the installed sign is below.
We are also pleased to announce that we have raised sufficient funds to begin work on the second sign. This will be a larger, double-sided sign that will be placed near the monument to provide information about the property. It will be positioned near the point where visitors will be able to access the site from the Perkiomen trail and the bridge across the Perkiomen Creek, when the bridge project is completed later this year. One side will include a colorized, hand-drawn map of the property as it was in 1900, with descriptive text. The other side is still in the works, but is likely to relate to the site's Revolutionary War history.
It is thanks to the support of our Friends and benefactors that we were able to reach this goal. Additional signs are planned, so we still need your support (see below).
