Juneteenth Tours at Peter Wentz Farmstead

June 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join the Peter Wentz Farmstead in observation of Juneteenth, the holiday commemorating the emancipation of Black enslaved people in America. They will be offering special tours throughout the weekend focusing on the lives of the enslaved people owned by the Wentz family and how their stories connect to the larger history of slavery in early Pennsylvania.

Learn about Jack, a freedom seeker owned by Peter Wentz who escaped twice from the farmstead. Hear the stories of Hannah Till and William Lee, enslaved people who were brought here with General George Washington during the Philadelphia Campaign. Immerse yourself in the 18th century as you discover the complicated and rarely told history of slavery in Pennsylvania. The Peter Wentz Farmstead is a National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom site.

Tours will run every half hour throughout the weekend. Space is limited. Tickets are free, but register here to reserve your spot on a timed tour.
