4. Leave the Plantation as you found it
Flash photography is permitted in the farmhouse and most buildings, except for any structure containing animals. For the safety of our visitors and livestock, flash photography is not permitted near our animals while they are working or at rest. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in expulsion from the Plantation without refund.
The Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation has provided the backdrop for a number of historical films, documentaries and specials. With its five carefully reconstructed 18th century buildings, period authentic interiors, and 112 acres of historically accurate gardens, crop fields and pastures, the Plantation is the perfect location for your film shoot.
Filming fees vary based on usage of interiors/exteriors as well as time of year. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610-566-1725 to inquire about taking a tour of the site.
