Our June monthly meeting is a special "onsite" visit to the new exhibit at the Henry Muhlenberg House in Trappe.  

 

Revolution at Home: The Muhlenberg Family of Pennsylvania

Step inside the world of Lutheran minister Henry Muhlenberg in this special exhibition at his beautifully restored home in Trappe, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Organized in conjunction with Trappe’s 300th anniversary, the exhibit focuses on the year 1787, when Henry and his wife, Anna Maria, sold the house to their son Peter. Experience three generations living under one roof together with their indentured German and enslaved African servants.

Highlights include splendid examples of Pennsylvania German and Philadelphia furniture, silver, and portraits—many from the Muhlenberg family—on loan from The Speaker’s House, home of Frederick Muhlenberg. Other lenders include Muhlenberg descendants, the Dietrich American Foundation, Rocky Hill Collection, Wunsch Americana Foundation, and many private collectors and regional institutions.

 

The Henry Muhlenberg House is located at 201 W. Main Street, Trappe, PA 19426 and is owned and operated by the Historical Society of Trappe, Collegeville, Perkiomen Valley.

 

If you are unable to attend our onsite visit the exhibit is open for tours on the second and fourth Sundays of the month from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Special tours can be arranged by contacting info@historictrappe.org.  Through December 31, 2017.
