Colonial Plantation Muster and Fundraiser

Does anyone know where this building is or was? It was the Worrell Postoffice at one time..            This picture is from the 1930's. It was in the Media area.

Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation

at Ridley Creek State Park

Since 1974 the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation has given visitors a glimpse of 18th century Pennsylvania farm life through group programming, weekend activities and outreach opportunities. Attention to detail and authenticity are the hallmarks of Plantation programs from formal tours and hands-on workshops to the “living history” approach seen by weekend visitors. Visiting the Plantation is an educational experience that is unique and unforgettable.
The Plantation is open to the general public on weekends and to groups by prior arrangements. Because the Plantation is a working farm with authentically restored unheated buildings, it is open from April into early December. Outreach programs are available year round.

In colonial times, a muster was the gathering of local farmers to drill, work, and socialize with good food and music. We will have discussions between loyalist and rebels resulting in a small armed conflict. Participating units will be the 4th Legionary Cavalry and the Chester
County Militia.
There will be a full period encampment and light infantry and Cavalry (mounted soldiers) drills and demonstrations. The women will be working the loom, spinning and processing flax. The men will be working with wood and working in the fields. Tea will be served in the parlor and hearth cooking will take place in the kitchen.
