Pottsgrove Manor

Pottsgrove Manor was built in 1752 for John Potts, the founder of Pottstown. It was situated on a nearly 1,000 acre plantation, though only four acres of original property remain today. The mansion has been restored to reflect the time the Potts family resided there. Pottsgrove Manor is open year-round for guided tours, as well as public programs, school tours, lectures, and workshops. A museum shop on site offers a fine selection of 18th century reproduction items, books, toys, and more. View more information.
