Pottsgrove Manor Plans Potts’ Plots Cleaning

POTTSTOWN PA – Pull a few weeds, rake some leaves, and help members of the Pottsgrove Manor staff and other volunteers uncover the overlooked history of the Potts family burial plot, during a public cleaning of the family cemetery scheduled for Oct. 19 (2019; Saturday) from 1-3 p.m. at 230 Chestnut St.

Learn about the final resting place of John and Ruth Potts, the founders of Pottstown, along with many of their descendants while helping the cemetery look its best. Volunteers are asked to dress for gardening and weeding work, and are encouraged to bring their own hand tools.

Start the day of service, anytime between 10 a.m. and noon, with a tour of the Potts family 1752 manor house at 100 W. King St. Discover the Potts family and its life during the 18th century. Then make your way over to the Potts family burial ground to give back to the community. This event is rain or shine, and all ages can participate. Participants are asked to sign a release waiver before beginning.
