Bookbindery at Sugartown Leaves Good Impression
Aug 2018
The collection of bookbinding tools on view tell the story of how this craft and art developed in American history.

A Tour Of Our Past
Jun 2018 • Friends
While planning a trip of Malvern to learn about the local history and people I ran across Historic Sugartown on the internet. It turned out to be a great tour of older buildings, homes, a general store, a book binders workshop, and a barn. All filled with historical artifacts you won't see anywhere other than a museum. Our guide, Alicia, was knowledgeable, friendly, and very patient answering all of our questions. If you're in the area make it a must see!

Touring the Historic Sugartown General Store in Malvern, PA is a glimpse into the past. The store is chocked full of antiques and has many stories to tell for sure.

Super interesting, great tour guide
Aug 2017 • Family
We live not too far away, but had never been to Historic Sugartown. We went for a tour on a Sunday afternoon and were so impressed. Our tour guide, Alicia, was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and fun. The tour lasted for an hour and took us through multiple buildings and sites. Everything was very well done, professional, and authentic. Our 10 year old son thought it was awesome, too. I highly recommend this tour!

Beautiful scenery On drive to Sugartown. The tour guide is very nice and informative. The buildings are a definite photo op but most are now either private residents or rented out The general store is very realistic and the book bindery is wonderful

Quaint Historic Tour
Jul 2016 • Couples
We saw this town on Trip Advisor and decided to go. It's a very small historic town that has all the charm of yesteryear. Our tour guide "Alicia" was very knowledgable and fun to be with. We learned they have several events throughout the year and plan on returning for some of them. They have a Facebook page that shows all of them for anyone who is interested.

We were here around Halloween for a spooky historical tour. It was not scary so that was nice, it was all true anecdotes and generally a fun tour. Tea and cookies served at the end. What fun!

Historic intersection with original buildings and interesting details is like stepping back in time
Nov 2015 • Family
If you live in the rolling hills of Willistown, you appreciate the open spaces and the feeling that time hasn't changed much. The intersection of Boot Road and Sugartown Road was once a vibrant little town; a tiny little center of commerce, education, and society called Sugartown. And it remains that today. An achingly preserved general store and Centennial houses and shops are all just as they were. Not more than a few years ago these buildings were almost falling down, but they now house interactive tours and activities for all ages. There is a large Carriage museum, with Ponderosa Wagons, hearses, and other 'state-of-the-art' vehicles of their time. There is a fascinating bookbindery that has hands-on-lessons on how to create your own books. They have fun xmas programs, and a spooky Halloween Lantern tour, among lots of other activities for the community. If you live in the area, you should stop and check it out, instead of zooming right through it, which we busy people tend to do. The village survives by the generosity of neighbors and generous friends. So get out and support your community while having fun and learning something.
