The Historic Preservation Trust of Berks County (HPTBC) invites you to join us for our October 3rd Saturday Program. These site-wide programs are offered April-October and include various formats and topics such as exhibits, demonstrations, interactive sessions, and oral and graphic presentations. Tours of Morlatton Village will be offered when applicable. Program begins at the White Horse Inn. Suggested donation $2/person. All proceeds benefit the Trust.

Join the Chapter 21 volunteer archaeologists as they present their latest findings at the Mouns Jones House Root Cellar. Recent discoveries include the original stone-arched entryway, massive stone steps, and the herring-bone patterned early brick floor. Longtime Trust volunteer Larry Ward will also be on hand to answer questions and give visitors a tour around the Mouns Jones House and other buildings in Morlatton Village.
