The Bensalem Historical Society Presents the 2nd Annual “Growden Day.” The event will take place on Saturday, September 29th at 5408 Neshaminy Valley Drive, the event will be from 10 a.m. to 3.pm. The event will feature, among other things, tours of the mansion, an art show, pumpkin painting, DIY kites, and refreshments.

Dawn Davis, The Assistant to the Mayor of Bensalem, Joe Digirolamo, detailed how a fun day also celebrates local history.

“The Growden Mansion is one for the oldest remaining mansions in the Trevose area,”┬áDavis said. “It’s just a day where we will have all sorts of children’s activities, wood widdling, colonial cooking, and all sorts of activities related to the 16, 17 and 1800’s.”

Davis said the number of people estimated at the first annual Growden Day was around 500, but she expects the attendance to be larger this year.

“It was so well received last year, and I believe that our weather pattern is going to change for tomorrow, so if its a nice fall sunny day, I think we will get a nice crowd,” Davis explained. “Its just an all out good day to bring the family to Bensalem.”

A rain date is scheduled for Sunday, September 30th, though the forecast is showing clear skies with highs in the 70’s. Anyone who would like more information could contact (215) 639-6575.
