The Pennsbury Society supports the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission in the administration of Pennsbury Manor, a reconstruction of Pennsylvania founder William Penn’s home along the Delaware River. After design and construction based on archaeological finds, written documents, and period research, Pennsbury Manor opened to the public in 1939, furnished with a collection of late 17th-century furniture and objects. In 2020, the Pennsbury Society received a Center Project grant for nkwiluntàmën: I long for it; I am lonesome for it (such as the sound of a drum), a sound-based installation designed for the grounds of Pennsbury Manor and created by multidisciplinary artist Nathan Young, a member of the Delaware Tribe of Indians.
