How We Support Pennypacker Mills

At the Pennypacker Mills Historic Site, history lives through the vast collection of antiques and furnishings collected by former Pennsylvania Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker. Fascinating FREE guided tours are available 6 days a week. The Mills was voted Best Historic Site three years in a row on the Montco Happening List.

​The Friends provides funding for educational programs, preservation projects and acquisitions. See some highlights of our work below.

The Friends of Pennypacker Mills has funded several acquisitions by the Site, most notably a collection of items that belonged to Gov. Pennypacker’s second cousin, Galusha Pennypacker. Learn more
