This lecture will present a brief history of the c. 1705 Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation, which was for three generations the home of the sometimes-Quaker, sometimes-slaveholding Pratt family.  Ms. Green will touch on the early agricultural history of the region, daily life on an eighteenth century farm, and the story of the Pratt family as they transitioned over the course of a century from colonials to Americans.
