Pennsbury Manor will be hosting an event for the general public to view “The Great Law” of 1682 on March 11 at its location at 400 Pennsbury Memorial Rd, Morrisville, PA.
Bucks County Representative Perry Warren tweeted about the event, trying to get the local community out to see the piece of Pennsylvania history.
“It’s a great opportunity for Bucks County residents to go to Pennsbury manor and see this law that serves as the basis for law in colonial Pennsylvania,” Warren told LowerBucks.Live. “It is just a gem.”
Pennsbury Manor is the personal colonial estate of William Penn here in Pennsylvania. It has been refurbished and is open to the public for tours.
The Great Law of 1682 will be on display in the manor for free during the event from 1-4 P.M. This is the first time ever the six-page document will be on display for the general public.
The edict is being shown as part of the celebration of Charter day. It was Pennsylvania’s first real law and established freedom of religion and religious practices.
