Pennsbury Manor is reopening its most iconic feature after months of renovations. William Penn’s Manor House will open its doors once again on Saturday, July 31.
Jim Pagliaro, a volunteer and member of the Pennsbury Society, joined Speak Your Piece on 1490 WBCB Thursday. He previously donated $17,500 to Pennsbury Manor to spur others to contribute.
Pagliaro is also the board’s Fundraising Chair. He announced the reopening on the air waves.
“We used the time very effectively when we were closed,” said Pagliaro. “We actually did some fairly significant environmental upgrades to the property. We had thermal projects installed by the Commonwealth for the Manor House and Visitor Center so we’re really going to be up to date in terms of climate issues.”
He added they took the opportunity to empty the Manor House and clean the building.
Overall, the site of Pennsbury Manor has been open for a few months. Admission fees have been waived in the meantime while the Manor House remains closed.
Guided tours of the property and other buildings on the premises are still available. Visitors can reserve a tour on most days by calling 215-946-0400.
The available times for guided tours are below:
- Wed – Sat at 11:30, 1:30, and 3:00
- Sunday at 12:30, 2, and 3:30.
