In 1717, William Keith became governor of Penn's Woods. By 1721 he had somehow acquired 1200 acres of land in Horsham and was building a malt house, brewery, and distillery on the estate he called Fountain Low. Join us today and meet Sir William, a man who Ben Franklin called "an ingenious sensible man, a pretty good writer, and a good governor," even after Keith had broken a promise to fund Ben's new printing business. In honor of Governor Keith, we will once again have the brew kettle on the fire at Graeme Park. Presentation at 2:00 p.m. Tours of the Keith House scheduled throughout the day.
