Benjamin Parry’s 267th birthday celebrated in New Hope


The 267th birthday of Benjamin Parry, known as “The father of New Hope,” was recently celebrated at the Parry Mansion Museum with a walking tour that traced Parry’s life.

It was followed by a champagne reception at the museum where New Hope historian Roy Zeigler described the life of Parry. A highlight of the celebration was the 200-year-old grandfather clock belonging to Parry, which was recovered and restored to its original location in the Parry Mansion after it was removed over six decades ago.
