Medicinal Plants in the Colonial Era

part of the Revolutionary Germantown Festival

Demonstrations and activities for all ages.

Come explore plant use in the 18th century with an emphasis on those grown or harvested for medicinal purposes. Plants have always played a necessary role in our lives, and during Colonial Times. Native plants and herbs were the most common treatment for everything from a sore throat to a stomachache to poison ivy. Stop by Awbury’s table at Cliveden to learn more.

Visitors will be able to engage with the 18 sites in Historic Germantown through family-friendly activities that highlight the diverse experiences of the men, women and children who lived in 1777 Germantown.
