Explore Waynesboro History at the Renfrew Museum & Park
Take a break from modern life and travel through time to the Renfrew Museum and Park. At this gorgeous 19th-century farmstead grounds you can fully enjoy the Waynesboro, PA weather, or duck inside the preserved Museum House to find out how Waynesboro lived 200 years ago.
The sprawling estate and buildings were established in the early 1800’s as a farm and became a public museum in 1975. The museum itself is named after the Renfrew sisters–known by some as the “Bloody Sisters of Renfrew Park”–who supposedly met a gruesome end during one of the violent raids of the French & Indian War, right on the site where the park is today.
What the Renfrew Museum and Park Offers
The Renfrew Museum’s mission is to preserve and interpret the original farmstead, in order to give Hagerstown and Chambersburg visitors a real idea of what early Waynesboro life was like. Visitors can watch demonstrations and step through time in the Museum House.
The Renfrew Museum also maintains a unique pottery collection from the famous 19th-century local artist John Bell and his family.
The Renfrew Park is free to all visitors and is open from dawn until dusk throughout the entire year. The Museum House Tours are from mid-April through October, Monday through Saturday, 1pm-4pm, and admission is $6 and under.
Waynesboro schools and large groups are welcome and may be eligible for discount prices, but they must book in advance.
The museum offers a yearly calendar of events for locals and Gettysburg visitors alike to enjoy, including Civil War Reenactments, Easter egg hunts, summer concerts, and more. Don’t miss out on upcoming fall events like Octoberfest on 10/6 and Pumpkin Fest on 10/20!
