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. No pets are allowed. Outreach programs are available year round. To plan your visit or outreach and discover more about the Plantation, use the links to the left of this page.

The Plantation is a non-profit educational corporation that qualifies under Section 501(c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code and operates under lease agreement with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources.
