September 17 • 10am-3pm

Join us for the re-dedication of The Shelley-Pendleton Education Center and the reopening of the George Douglass Mansion. Visitors will be welcomed into the Mansion by Mistress Mary Douglass, and Trust volunteers will discuss the restoration of the building. In addition, the Society of Pennsylvania Archaeology, Chapter 21 will also present their latest archaeological findings at the Mouns Jones House. Chapter 21 conducts several archaeological excavations throughout the year at the property and has uncovered numerous artifacts over the years relating to the history of this important structure. The Mouns Jones House, built in 1716, is the oldest standing building in Berks County.
