10/21/2023 Uncategorized 0

Do you love history and would you love to have some fun portraying a historic figure at special events?

Summerseat is seeking a reenactment volunteer to portray Mr. Barclay.

During General Washington’s time at Summerseat, the mansion was owned by Thomas Barclay, who would become America’s first consul overseas and who also negotiated the first treaty for the United States with a foreign nation, Morocco. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, with whom Barclay worked while in France, recommended Barclay for this position.

History knowledge and experience portraying a historic figure is a plus, however, if you are willing to learn about Mr. Barclay and feel you may be the right fit, we would love to hear from you. The age range we are looking to portray for Mr. Barclay is 40 – mid 60s.

Our volunteers make a difference bringing history to life for children and adults alike.

Come be a part of preserving and making Bucks County History! Call today to inquire if you think you might be able to help.

Contact Don at or 267 258 6728 or email for more information or if you can help.

This is your chance to experience life as Mr. Barclay, to make a difference at Summerseat and to educate others while doing so – a wonderful volunteer opportunity!
