Historic Sugartown

On June 4, 2022, at 11:00am join JASNA Eastern PA touring Historic Sugartown, a nineteenth century village located in Malvern Pennsylvania. 


Along Sugartown Road in Malvern stands the remarkably intact and lovingly restored, 19th-century village of Sugartown. In the early 1800s, with the American Revolution behind them, Sugartown’s early residents established a school, general store, businesses and meeting places, creating a vibrant crossroads that provided goods and services to its surrounding farming community. The village was soon known as Shugart’s Town, after tavern keeper Eli Shugart, and served as a vital stop for weary travelers hauling wagonloads of goods to the markets of Philadelphia and other parts of the county. Sugartown remained a social, educational, commercial and municipal center throughout the 1800s.

Today, Sugartown offers a window into American life in an early 19th-century rural crossroads village. Through the preservation efforts of Historic Sugartown, Inc., visitors experience how people came together to conduct business, exchange news, and shared their lives as a community.

Join JASNA Eastern PA in exploring nineteenth-century village life and culture through rich collections and authentically restored buildings on this special group tour of Historic Sugartown. Our 2-hour experience will consist of a guided tour in the General Store and Carriage Museum, School Room Exhibit, Garrett House, Book Bindery, and 19th-century Bank Barn.

The cost for the tour is $9.00 per person. There will also be an optional box lunch available for an additional $13.00 per person. Box lunch options include…


The box lunch also includes coleslaw, a deviled egg, and Upcake, and bottled water.
