Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation
at Ridley Creek State Park

On Wednesday, July 18 the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation will offer its first ever “Wednesday Evening at the Farm” with a special presentation by local historian, Keith Lockhart. The gate opens at 6 PM, and visitors can bring their picnic dinner, blankets and chairs to enjoy a leisurely picnic before the evening’s offerings get underway. Food and drinks will also be available for purchase.
At 7 PM Lockhart will present a program featuring his prized collection of Delaware County postcards. Lockhart’s collection is considered the largest of its kind in the region. Take a trip through Delaware County 100 years ago when postcards were the rage! The program will take place in the Plantation’s colonial era wagon barn.
During the evening the Plantation farmhouse and the kitchen garden will be available for tours. Demonstrations taking place include textile making and long rifle firing. Of course, the Plantation’s farm animals will be around for viewing.
Closing time is 9 PM. Admission is $5 per person. Children under 4 are free.
The Plantation is located in Ridley Creek State Park and is easily reached via Routes 3, 352, 252 or Providence Road.
This is a weather permitting event. If the weather is uncertain, check the Plantation’s website at or call the Plantation office at 610 566-1725 and listen for the message.
The Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation is a not for profit living history farm site operating under a long term lease agreement with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and
Natural Resources.
