Santarsiero hosts Community Conversation with Pennsbury Manor director


State Sen. Steve Santarsiero (D-10) highlighted the historic Pennsbury Manor in Falls Township, hosting a Community Conversation video discussion about the site, the many educational offerings and how it has stayed active through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ahead of Charter Day on March 8, Santarsiero sat down with Historic Site Director Doug Miller, to talk about William Penn’s estate and its legacy in Bucks County and Pennsylvania.

“Pennsbury Manor is a historic gem in Bucks County, that continues to share the legacy of our founder William Penn through estate tours, school programming and events like Charter Day,” said Santarsiero. “I am fortunate to represent a district with such rich history, dating back to the founding of our Commonwealth, and Pennsbury Manor respects the legacy of the property while making it accessible for the community and visitors.”

Speaking on the influence of William Penn on many of core tenants of democracy, Miller noted, “What this historic site offers us is a springboard for people to learn about Penn’s life and his legacy. Many people don’t connect our daily lives to Penn’s contributions … but in some way Penn’s legacy touches us each and every day.”
