Archival Adventures in Small Repositories
A living history museum and working farm located in Ridley Creek State Park. Our purpose is to enhance understanding of 1760-1790 farm life in southeastern PA by providing a high-quality, research based experience to the public.
Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation's archival holdings span nearly 100 linear feet of materials from the 1970s to the present, primarily consisting of the institutional records of the Plantation and its predecessor organizations. There are also research files of secondary-source materials gathered by Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation to support the organization's research and work, focusing on local history, Colonial life, and historic reenactment.
