RELIVE HISTORY IN A STORIED HOME OF THE PAST AT WHITE HORSE FARM The original stone dwelling dates to 1770. Then in 1810 an addition with a glass-enclosed sleeping porch was erected. In 1915, the home was expanded into two stories at the rear of the house featuring a Grand Ballroom and an impressive veranda with magnificent columns dramatized. Additionally, the property is being sold including two separate parcels (27-6A-72)(27-6A-72.1) with two separate deeds! The home is on 3/4 acres and the barn sits on 1.1 acre both of which are included in the total price! White Horse Farm was the residence of Elijah F. Pennypacker, a member of the PA State legislature until he retired from politics to support the antislavery movement. The farm became a hub on the Underground Railroad. The home is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The tunnel where runaways traveled through seeking freedom was hidden in the farmhouse basement and led to the barn. Though covered, it is still evident today. The wonderment of White Horse Farm appeals to historic home purists who appreciate its epic past and current potential. The stately mansion offers 5 bedrooms and 3 full-and-2-half baths. Fireplaces (some converted to gas) grace nearly every room, and original millwork, shadow boxes, tray ceilings, and rich wood floors are reminiscent of the quality demanded by America’s early homeowners.
