Manor House
Pine Forge Historic Site

In 1715, Thomas Rutter purchased land where he would build his first forge, on or near the present campus of Pine Forge Academy.

This forge, although crude and short lived, was the first forge in the colony, and would stimulate many other forges that would allow Pennsylvania to become, in time, the "Birmingham of modern civilization."

Please call 610-367-7881 for information on tours of the Rutter Manor mansion and grounds.
