The original stone dwelling dates to 1770. Then in 1810 an addition with a glass-enclosed sleeping porch was erected. In 1915, the home was expanded into two stories at the rear of the house featuring a Grand Ballroom and an impressive veranda with magnificent columns dramatized shadowed by a 300 year old stunning sycamore.

White Horse Farm was the residence of Elijah F. Pennypacker, a member of the PA State legislature until he retired from politics to support the antislavery movement. The farm became a hub on the Underground Railroad. The tunnel where runaways traveled through seeking freedom was hidden in the farmhouse basement and led to the barn. Though covered, it is still evident today.
