Deborah as Mother Goose, a favorite of the younger set.

Deborah Peterson is pleased to offer the benefit of more than 30 years of experience and research into Southeastern Pennsylvania's English colonial domestic history. Using primary sources to document her research, she brings her years of real life experience and intense personal research into your classroom to give life to our foremothers and to dispel the popular myths that have become so firmly embedded in our interpretation of American colonial history. Programs are available to private and public schools, organizations, groups, individuals and historic sites in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, though not limited to those areas.

Deborah is an animated, intelligent speaker who loves to share her expertise and experiences with interested parties. She comes to your site with many authentically reproduced items, dressed in carefully researched colonial clothing made by her own hand. You will see, recreated as closely as possible, what a woman of the lower or middling sort would have looked like in Southeastern Pennsylvania circa 1760-1770.

Lectures and hands-on experiences have been popular teaching events for students of all ages. Parents who have noted the success of these classes have requested that Deborah create a series of more detailed and sophisticated presentation for adults, and she has been more than pleased to answer that request. Browse her offerings by general age group, or by specific subject matter.
