What's behind this door at Wentz, which features an original lock?

WORCESTER PA –  Nooks and crannies found within the original Peter Wentz Farmstead will be open to the public for exploration Saturday (Oct. 2, 2010) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., when volunteers and members of the museum’s staff offer a series of behind-the scenes tours at the property, 2100 Shearer Rd., Worcester PA.

The tours present an opportunity to peek into the farmstead’s attic, basement, and everywhere in between, said museum educator Kimberly Boice.  Guides will explain elements of the Georgian architecture of the house, and some of the more recently reconstructed out-buildings.  A discussion of the ongoing restoration of the property will also include a look at clues used to determine the original appearance of a structure.

“This tour will allow a closer look at some of the architectural details of the house and infrequently exhibited objects in the collection,” added Site Supervisor Dianne Cram.

The tour involves tight, winding stairways and confined spaces, so visitors are asked to wear flat, comfortable shoes and plan to get a little dirty.  The program is best suited for people age 12 and older.  Space is limited, and advance reservations are requested. For more in formation or to make a reservation, call 610-584-5104.
