Mountain Ride will be making their debut Renfrew performance Thursday, July 20 at 7 pm as part of our Summer Concert Series. Let's give them a warm Waynesboro welcome!

Mountain Ride was forged in the Great Valley of south-central Pennsylvania, for the simple need to play bluegrass. For these five friends, bluegrass is a necessity. Hailing from the new generation of bluegrassers, they tend to bring a unique flair to the traditional, and a progressive twist to the original.

Mountain Ride is composed of Eric Avey (guitar and vocals), Chance Hurley (mandolin), Scott Matlock (fiddle and vocals), Corey Woodcock (banjo), and Kate Avey (bass and vocals). With years of experience under their straps and strings, they have found something new, something that can only be described as Mountain Ride.

Renfrew would like to thank John and Deb Beck for sponsoring a fabulous "A Day in the Life of the Royer Children" event on Saturday, July 15! We'd also like to thank our amazing volunteers who spent the day serving food and helping with the games and chore stations.

A Day in the Life of the Royer Children welcomed 600+ guests to the park and was a huge success. We hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather, the Slim Harrison and the Sunnyland Band, the petting zoo, spending time with your family and learning about how the Royer children lived, worked and played in the 1800's.

Thank you to Old Home Photography for sharing your photos of the event.

About Renfrew

Open dawn to dusk year-round and free of charge, Renfrew welcomes you to explore the historic grounds and miles of nature trails.

Renfrew Museum is a restored farmstead with many outbuildings to see and activities to participate in. Your tour begins at our Visitors Center with a DVD presentation, and an explanation of the nation’s leading collection of John Bell and Bell family pottery. Paid admission takes you on a guided tour of the 1812 Renfrew Museum where you will see the kitchen, dining room, parlors and bedrooms with period furnishings throughout.

Now, two centuries after Daniel Royer’s day, much of the landscape is unchanged. As an historical institution, Renfrew offers its visitors an intimate view of the past. Visit us in Waynesboro, and discover how the agriculture, industry and domestic life of over 200 years ago worked together to make a prosperous Pennsylvania German farmstead.

A special feature of the Renfrew Museum is the only permanent public display of artifacts from the Snow Hill Cloister, a 19th century monastical society located in nearby Quincy, Pennsylvania.

The Royer-Nicodemus House and Farm are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Located in the Visitor Center is a quaint gift shop with an interesting array of items, many from local artisans. Gift shop hours during season are the same as museum hours. Off-season hours are Monday through Friday 11:00am until 4:00pm.
