The Parry Mansion Museum
The African American Museum of Bucks County, (AAMBC) will bring its exhibit, “Building on the Dream: From Africa to Bucks County” to another distinguished museum in Bucks County, The Parry Mansion Museum, located at 45 South Main Street in New Hope.
The new exhibit, scheduled to open on May 1, will enable more Bucks County residents and tourists to see the museum’s collection of artifacts from Africa and to learn about the culture, contributions of African Americans in Bucks County and beyond. The museum not only recognizes well known historical figures but seeks to bring to light untold stories and hidden figures in Bucks County today.
“We are thrilled to partner with The Parry Mansion Museum,” said Linda Salley, President and Executive Director of the African American Museum of Bucks County. “Over the past six years, we have partnered with several museums, including the Mercer Museum and Pearl S. Buck International House, and have found these collaborations to be very successful in terms of extending our reach. New Hope is particularly attractive as it is such a popular foot-trafficked tourist location. Until our new building in Middletown Township is renovated and open to the public, we depend upon the generosity of our partners to house our exhibits.”
