COVID-19: Mott House Closed

The Peter Mott House Underground Railroad Museum will be closed through March as a precaution because of the coronavirus. Although we operate a small house museum, the Lawnside Historical Society takes its responsibility to the public seriously. The safety of our members, tour guides and guests of all ages is of paramount importance.

We will post an announcement when we re-open.
