A fascinating peek into the colonial era. Home and property are beautifully maintained and the events running all year are entertaining and educational for all ages. If you have kids, this connects directly to their history curriculum at some point - worth seeing and experiencing- a touch of Williamsburg, VA in our own backyards (But don't skip Williamsburg- it's AMAZING!)

The Wentz homestead is beautifully kept. Tour of the home includes many rooms including a wonderful colonial kitchen, main rooms, 2nd floor bedrooms and 3rd floor servant quarters. The beehive oven is amazing and on special days, colonial cooking can be seen here. Other special events include colonial games on the lawn, archaeological demonstrations, holiday events, sheep shearing and others.... More

An interesting farm. House and barn; some farm animals. Yes, George Washington did stay here and planned his crossing of the Delaware river from here. Some re-enactings, some colonial crafts. Good for photographers and when holding colonial craft days it's great for kids.

We had a few hours before the late afternoon wedding we were attending nearby and our brother-in-law saw that there was a harvest festival going on here. It was great. Esp. For families. Our favorite was the apple cider press demonstration - this was the real thing, done as in days of old. Both interesting and hands on (for the... More

Nice place to check out to see how the people lived back in the early days...early 1800's nice tour by candle light. Really was a nice night out. Reinactment was spot on.

We are very fortunate to live near this historic site. We have visited many times and our grandchildren have gone to the summer camp which they really enjoy.

Went to a candlelight tour with family and friends. It was cold but gave us a very good representation of how life was at the time of the American Revolution! Would be a very good visit in conjunction with Valley Forge National Park.

I read all of the prior reviews AFTER my wife and I visited on a lovely September afternoon and I agree with all of the previous observations. This is a lovely way to spend an afternoon: touring the historic house, walking through a Colonial garden, wandering the grounds. We will definitely be back.

A delightful place. I especially like the preschool education programs run by Mrs. B. She is wonderful with the little kids.

A gem of a farm, offers a time capsule of when "George Washington slept here." Lovingly and accurately restored. Period era crops and animals (nice sheep!). Tours are well-done; guides really know their stuff.
