Our first OPEN HOUSE of 2022 at the historic IndenHofen Farmstead is here! SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, from 12-4PM across from the Skippack Post Office. The House (c.1713) and Barn Museums, including the Summer Kitchen (1840's), present a display of fascinating artifacts which have been donated from the local area.
Yes! The Barn will be open as well! You won't want to miss the special demonstrations in the barn of the one-horse treadmill at 1, 2 and 3 o'clock. The treadmill was made in Lansdale in 1902, and used on a farm in nearby Rahns, PA. It was donated to the Skippack Historical Society through the efforts of Ceaser Gorski. A must see!
Flooring repairs were completed, too, opening even more space.
If you remember the House as pictured above, you are in for some surprises! Many of our projects have been completed such as new landscaping with early American native plantings (donated by Floral & Hardy of Skippack), the Entry Room "Kitchen" project, with several new unique acquisitions of interest such as the "Ice Box," and the antique Kitchen Work Station similar to a Hoosier Cabinet, will capture your curiosity with its workings. Many of the artifacts are now labeled for your convenience in the Victorian Room, the Doctor's Room, and the upstairs display areas.
The IndenHofen Farmstead is located at Evansburg Road and Skippack Pike.
All are WELCOME! Come for 10 minutes, or stay an hour or more and share our local history! See you there! Free admission!
