The Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation welcomes visitors with disabilities. We are committed to providing accessible programs, events and services. The first floor of our historic farmhouse is accessible by wheelchair, as are most of our grounds (though there are areas of rough terrain.) There is a gravel path from our general parking area to our main historic complex which is navigable by wheelchair; in most circumstances we will allow visitors with mobility issues to use our back entrance to avoid having to take the path to the farmhouse. For more information about accessibility, please call 610-566-1725.
The Plantation is located in Ridley Creek State Park, Edgmont Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
