WORCESTER PA – Peek into the attic and the basement, and everywhere in-between, during a “Secrets of The Wentz Farmstead” tour to be conducted Saturday (May 8, 2010) between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Montgomery County’s historic Peter Wentz Farmstead, 2100 Shearer RD., Worcester PA.

Members of the site’s staff will explain elements of Georgian architecture within the restored 18th century Pennsylvania German house, and some of the more recently reconstructed outbuildings. A discussion of the ongoing restoration of the property will also include a look at some of the clues used to determine the original appearance of a structure.

From supporting arches in the cellar to storage areas in the attic, visitors will enjoy a first-hand look at the details of the ancillary buildings and 1758 home, Museum Educator Kimberly Boice said.

The tour will involve tight, winding stairways and confined spaces, so guests are urged to  wear flat, comfortable shoes. Plan to get a little dirty, too, Boice warned.  The program is best suited for people age 12 and older.  Space is very limited for this program; advance reservations are requested. For reservations and more information, call 610-584-5104.

The farmstead is located 12 miles southeast of Limerick off PA Route 73.
