1696 Thomas Massey House [PA]

The 1696 Thomas Massey House was built by a Quaker who had come to America in 1683 as an indentured servant. After completing his servitude and prior to his death in 1707, Massey acquired 400 acres of land. Today, the home is furnished with 18th- and late 17th-century pieces.

The museum offers period rooms, tours, and group tours. Tours are available late April through October.
