About the Site
The manor house exemplifies the restrained elegance of early Georgian architecture popular with wealthy English gentry during the mid-18th century. Built in 1752 for John Potts, ironmaster and founder of Pottstown, the mansion was situated on a 1,000 acre plantation. Although only four acres of original property remain today, Pottsgrove Manor has lost none of its original charm and architectural beauty. The sandstone exterior, elegant interior and fine furnishings reflect the eminence that the Potts family had attained before selling the property in 1783. The mansion has been restored to recreate the lifestyle and times of the Potts family.
Pottsgrove Manor is open year-round for guided tours, as well as public programs, school tours, lectures, and workshops. Contact the museum for details about educational program for students and adults. The staff will be glad to plan an educational and entertaining program for your group. Groups of 10 or more are requested to call in advance to schedule their tour.
A museum shop on site offers a fine selection of 18th century reproduction items, books, toys, and more. A Colonial kitchen garden next to the manor house provides a beautiful backdrop for pictures.
The site is equipped with a parking area, which includes handicapped spaces and room for buses. There is also a modern ADA-compliant public restroom facility on site. For visitors with mobility issues, the site offers a first-floor tour with a video tour of the other floors of the mansion.
The site is closed all Mondays and major holidays.
Please note, no photography is allowed inside the historic building.
