The Seed of a Nation

Please check the PHMC newsletter for updates on site operations and schedules.

Thanks to Kim McCarty for the photos for this post.

It’s been a long time in the making, but the new orientation exhibit at Pennsbury Manor is finally taking shape. For that we are truly thankful. Through the hard work of Pennsbury’s staff over the past 8 (plus) years, the new exhibit will introduce visitors to William Penn, his legacy, and the many people who made Pennsbury run. “’The Seed of a Nation’: Honoring William Penn’s Vision,” was designed by Steve Feldman Design of Philadelphia, through Interpretive Solutions, who also worked with the staff on the content development of the exhibit. Studio Displays, of Charlotte, North Carolina, is responsible for fabrication and installation. Financial support for the exhibit has come from the PHMC, the Pennsbury Society, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the William Penn Foundation, the Pew Charitable Trusts, and others (my sincere apologies to anyone I've left out).

Exhibit walls started going up in early October and the designer’s concepts are coming to life.

There's lots more work to do, so stay tuned for additional updates. And there’s still time to attend the second night of Pennsbury’s annual holiday event, Holly Nights (if you’re reading this on Dec. 4).
