On this bus tour we will visit the ColonialPennsylvania Plantation in Ridley Creek State Park. This museum features an 18th century farmhouse, stone cabin, springhouse and two barns. This property had been a working farm for well over 250 years and was within a community of other 18th century farms, as well as near the mill village. The Farmer and our guide, Barbara Corson, was the popular presenter during our Traveling Herb Seminar to Ephrata Cloisters last year. We will have a guided tour of this special farm and home. Our next stop will be Rock Ford Plantation, in Lancaster County. This is the preserved 18th Century home of Edward Hand who served as Adjutant General to George Washington during the American Revolution. Just a short distance away is the EdwardHand Medical Heritage Foundation which has a fabulous display of materials from the healing arts of the 18th century with particular focus on Lancaster County.
