Glen Mills, PA 19342
Time: 10-4 -- FREE
In this historic setting, Colonial Revelers will present concerts at 11:30 and 1:30. We'll stroll around singing the rest of the time.
Newlin Mill is the oldest operating grist mill in Pennsylvania. It was built by Nathaniel Newlin in 1704, the third mill built on the site by the Newlin family, who had come to America in 1683. The mill was run by the Newlins until 1817, then by other owners through 1941. A descendent of the Newlin family bought it in 1958 and began restoring it to its 18th century appearance. Besides the mill, this living history site has two houses, an office, a barn and a grain storage building.

Marshallton Ghost Walk & Family Fun Night
Village of Marshallton
559 Northbrook Rd
West Chester, PA 19382
Colonial Revelers will sing throughout the evening at the historic ruins of Martin's Tavern. Friends of Martin's Tavern will provide hot cider, cookies and other food. The event involves the whole town, including all kinds of activities for kids, so park at the United Methodist Church at 1282 W. Strasburg Road and follow the signs.
Martin's Tavern, also called Center House, was built in 1764. The inn played a prominent role during the Battle of Brandywine in 1777. Much of the original tavern was lost over the years, but the ruins were restored and form the centerpiece of Marshallton's public square (really more of a triangle).
