The Unique Village In Pennsylvania Where Time Stands Still
Time travel isn’t just in the imagination of science fiction writers. Pennsylvania offers plenty of opportunities to travel back in time. Next time you’re looking for something fun to do, journey back to the 19th century. Historic Sugartown, a village in Pennsylvania, gives visitors a glimpse of life before smartphones, television, and the internet.
Historic Sugartown, nestled along Sugartown Road in Malvern, takes visitors back to the 19th century.
The historic village dates back to the early 1800's when Pennsylvanians came together to build the community.
Originally known as Shugart’s Town, the village consisted of a general store, a school, and shops. Travelers often stopped in the village to eat and to sleep.
Shugart's Town thrived for much of the 19th century. In 1983, Historic Sugartown Inc. led the effort to restore the village.
Today, visitors can explore various restored buildings, including The General Store, the Sharpless Worrall House, and the Bank Barn.
Tour the Carriage Museum, home to authentic carriages of the era. And, take advantage of the photo opportunities throughout the village, like the one below.
Watch demonstrations of the book binding process at the Book Bindery. The Book Bindery hosts workshops that teach visitors how to bind their own book.
Historic Sugartown hosts events throughout the year. The next event, A Fashionable Tea, is set for March 24, 2018.
The grounds of Historic Sugartown are open each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. all year around.
Tours are available from May through November. During those months, tours are offered on Saturdays between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
