Got it.

The colonial Pennsylvania plantation in Ridley Creek State Park. The sign says Media,PA ; but I think it's actually in Gradyville,PA.
I hadn't snagged a PA tag in quite a while; then this one pops up less than 15 miles from my home. I thought for sure Sloburban would beat me to it.
New tag shortly.

The New Tag

Here's the new tag:

Construction of this very old house was begun in the mid 1600's. The original owner was an ancestor of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

I didn't think he took it that far south so I didn't even look at Ridley till he gave the second clue.

Funny thing is, Ridley is like 5 min from Slo's house

1779 is just a reference to the colonial period. The flag visible in the original tag is known as the "Betsy Ross Flag," and debuted during the Revolutionary War (1775-1783).

It's impossible to attach a single date to that place however, because they also host civil war reenactments (1861-1865) and "Medieval Days," (WTF?)

Because the place has the word "colonial" in it's name, I tried to direct you to that period, even though googling the date would not yield results for the tag location. I was hoping someone would make the connection and know about the park.

The second clue was particularly google-friendly.

Just saying...
