Pottsgrove Manor, December 2013

Cold and snow limited my outdoor activities this past weekend, but I made a point of taking the candlelight Christmas tour of Pottsgrove Manor, the colonial home of ironmaster John Potts. The house was decorated for the season and staffed with volunteers who loved to go back to the 18th century. Due to the snow the tours ended at five PM instead of the planned eight, and attendance was down from last year, but everyone seemed to be having a good time, and the 26 decade old house looked beautiful in the snow. There is no photography allowed in the house, but the outside shots are pretty enough, I think.

Despite the cold, I handled the trip well. My knees didn't creak, and despite having to climb narrow curving steps I had no trouble. I also felt more confident walking on the snow.

The house will remained decorated for Twelfth Night through January 12, and guided tours are held on the hour during Pottsgrove Manor's normal hours. If you are in the Pottstown area, the Manor is worth a visit. You can find more information on Pottsgrove Manor at
