Living History Sunday: Sir William Keith: Savvy Politician or Scoundrel?
October 21, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $6.00
In 1717, William Keith became governor of Penn’s Woods. By 1721 he had somehow acquired 1200 acres of land in Horsham and was building a malt house, brewery, and distillery on the estate he called Fountain Low. Join us today and meet Sir William, a man who Ben Franklin called “an ingenious sensible man, a pretty good writer, and a good governor,” even after Keith had broken a promise to fund Ben’s new printing business. Presentation at 2:00 p.m. Tours of the Keith House scheduled throughout the day.
