POTTSTOWN, Dec. 12 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, announced today that Pottsgrove Manor has been awarded $4,000 in Cultural and Historical Support grants from the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission.
“As Pennsylvanians, we are justly proud of our commonwealth’s history as the cradle of American liberty,” Ciresi said. “This state funding will help support Pottsgrove Manor’s mission to provide insights to the general public into 18th century Pennsylvania and early Pottstown’s history.”
Pottsgrove Manor is the historic home of ironmaster John Potts, the founder of Pottstown. The house was built in 1752 and today is a museum that offers tours, programs, workshops and exhibits offering insight into 18th century history and the history of early Pottstown.
The goal of the Cultural and Historical Support Grant program is to strgthen Pennsylvania’s museum community by supporting the general operations of eligible museums and official county historical societies that are not supported by other state agency funding programs.
The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission is the official history agency of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
