Colonial Plantation at Ridley Creek State Park

Civil War Re-enactment at the Plantation
Since 1974 the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation has given visitors a glimpse of 18th century Pennsylvania farm life through group programming, weekend activities and outreach opportunities. Attention to detail and authenticity are the hallmarks of Plantation programs from formal tours and hands-on workshops to the “living history” approach seen by weekend visitors. Visiting the Plantation is an educational experience that is unique and unforgettable.

The Plantation is open to the general public on weekends and to groups by prior arrangements. Because the Plantation is a working farm with authentically restored unheated buildings, it is open from April into early December. No pets are allowed. Outreach programs are available year round.


Non-event Weekend Admissions and for all activities not listed in our Special Events Calendar are as follows:

Adults: $8.00

Children ages 4 - 12 & Seniors: $6.00

Children under age 4 are free.

Hours - Saturday & Sunday 11 AM – 4 PM.

On-site programs are available April through November and must be scheduled by calling the Plantation office, which is open year round, at 610-566-1725. Or visit
