A visit to Pennypacker Mills celebrates the best in vintage Christmas décor and history. Recalling a time when electricity was not available, visitors will enter a family home resplendent in shine with sparkling glass ornaments and gold and silver Dresden foil ornaments. Simply wrapped presents, a Pennsylvania German putz, kerosene lamps, vintage Christmas cards, children’s toys, and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the Formal Parlor, are all part of the holiday season. Experience the holiday traditions of the Pennypacker family, find new and exciting ways to decorate your own home, and marvel at both the formality of the first floor entertainment venues and the family quarters found on the second floor.

 

A stop at the Museum Shop is a must. Choose from glass ornaments and icicles, felt ornaments, Wilbur Bud chocolates, Dresdens, toys, Victorian Scrap images to decorate presents and much more! The Exhibit, “Greetings from Schwenksville” is also included on all visits to the Mills.
