50th Anniversary of Pumpkinland - 2021!

 

Linvilla's matriarch, Peg Linvill (1930-2018), created a harvest display which was awarded first place at Philadelphia Horticultural Society's Harvest Show held at Fairmount Park’s Memorial Hall in 1971. That display was returned to the family farm and was set up in the pumpkin sales area.  This was the beginning of what we have come to know as Pumpkinland!

For fifty years, the larger-than-life figures and scarecrows on display have illustrated the legends and lore of the harvest season, featuring local history and some of the many stories of pumpkins and apples.

In 1983, again, with the guidance of Peg Linvill, the staff off Linvilla created “Peggy Ann” the World’s Largest Rag Doll in the 1985 Guinness Book of World’s Records! Visitors of all ages have delighted in seeing Peggy Ann and the other amazing creations in Pumpkinland each year.

The displays you see are hand-made each year by the incredible crew of Linvilla’s Art Department, which is now headed by Nancy Linvill Dole, Peg’s daughter.
