Pennsauken’s Historic Homes Hold Dual Events On November 18

Saturday, Nov. 18 continues Pennsauken’s historic homes’ tradition of the dual themes of the season. Life in the colonial home as winter approaches is the theme of at historic Griffith Morgan House’s “Frost on the Pumpkin” event from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Here, the warm fire of the hearth will prepare savory seasonal foods and home-baked goods and refreshments entice, while other domestic chores and pastimes bring the household and friends together in preparation for the frost and snow. Meanwhile, the “Holiday Open House” at Burrough-Dover House from noon to 4:00 p.m., opens the season of holiday warmth with historical cheer! Harking back to the 19th century when the Dover family occupied the old home, the trimmings of the holiday season with tree and greens and candles, warming refreshments, holiday music, and more bring friends and family merrily back to the traditions of the festive time of year!

Griffith Morgan House is located at 243 Griffith Morgan Lane, off River Rd. between Delair and Route 73. Burrough-Dover House is located at 9201 Burrough-Dover Lane, off Haddonfield Rd. near the Wyndam Rd. traffic light. At both our Pennsauken homes for history, admission and tours are free and there is also plenty of free parking available. In addition, both Burrough-Dover House and Griffith Morgan House are also open for tours and research by appointment throughout the year.
