Interpretive Programs


The BRBHS provides historical and educational interpretative programs for a wide variety of audiences. Professional and volunteer reenactors present the history of Bushy Run and general 18th century life on the Pennsylvania frontier to groups both on and off-site. Past demonstrations and programs have included musket firing, British military drills, weaving, 18th century cooking, musical performances, and beer brewing. The site is frequently visited by reenactors and groups conducting these demonstrations including William Penn, the 60th Royal American Regiment, 18th century rangers, and Native Americans.

The History Speaks Series is one of our most popular examples of interpretive programming offered at Bushy Run Battlefield. The series consists of four programs and/or lectures on a variety of historical topics. Past program topics have included historical clothing, Native American language and culture, musical performances, archaeology, Scottish dancing, and whiskey distillation.
