Baseball has come a long way from its crude and humble beginnings in the fields of 19th century America. More than a game, baseball is a part of our American heritage. Join us as the Athletic Base Ball Club of Philadelphia plays the Brandywine Base Ball Club on the grassy field at Pennypacker Mills. The Athletics use period uniforms and equipment and the rules of the 1860’s. Be a part of the American Pastime and join us for an afternoon of all-American base ball! The Pennypacker mansion will be open for guided tours (it’s air conditioned) and visit the Museum Shop, for vintage inspired gifts, toys, and books. All ages; Fee: free; suggested donation $2.00 per person.
Pennypacker Mills is the home of Pennsylvania Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker (1903-1907) and his family. Set on 170-acres of bucolic farmland, the mansion is completely furnished and houses an extensive collection of official and personal artifacts of the Pennypacker family. Operated by the County of Montgomery, the site is open year-round for guided tours, seasonal events, educational programs, changing exhibits, and special programs.
