Easter Egg Hunt gets children searching the historic Stenton grounds [gallery]

Among many Easter-related events in Northwest Philadelphia this weekend, the historic Stenton mansion site hosted its annual egg hunt on Saturday afternoon.

Designed for youths up to 10 years old, the family-friendly event featured an egg hunt, dyeing, crafts and games from 1 to 3 p.m.

Stenton, the country mansion built in 1730 by James Logan, has been well preserved as a museum where visitors can learn about the secretary to William Penn and Logan’s vital role in the formation of the commonwealth.

In September, it was tapped to undergo an $800,000 landscaping “rejuvenation.”
