2020 Passport to History Weekend

Apr 5, 2020 in News

Jacobsburg Historical Society is a proud member of the Lehigh Valley Passport to History partnership of historic sites and resources in and around Pennsylvania’s Lehigh and Northampton Counties. Our new group website, www.lvhistory.org, is the perfect place to find local historic sites, museums, and events in the area.

Jacobsburg Historical Society will welcome visitors to our beautiful Boulton Historic Site on Saturday, August 15th and Sunday, August 16th from 12pm to 4pm. The Pennsylvania Longrifle Museum will be open for tours, featuring more than 100 historic arms on display and an impressive 18th Century Horn Object Collection on loan from Tim and Terri Lubenesky, along with new displays of Henry family artifacts including some of their personal firearms!  Our museum gift shop will be open too! Our magnificent 1832 J. Joseph Henry mansion, a fascinating house museum that was home to five generations of the Henry family, will be open for tours. The family’s original summer kitchen and its carriage and sleigh barns will all be open with unique exhibits and displays. Be sure to stop by the log cabin gun shop of Nicholas Hawk, one of the most talented makers of Pennsylvania longrifles of the 19th century.

Join us for our Annual Summer Community Picnic with free hotdogs available both days!  Enjoy our beautiful grounds and outdoor exhibits!

Great fun for the whole family with free parking and FREE admission for all!
