YFPA + Friends of Rittenhouse Square Tour of Rittenhouse Square

By Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia (other events)

Wednesday, September 11 2019 6:30 PM 7:30 PM

Join the Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance and the Friends of Rittenhouse Square at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 11th for a tour of Rittenhouse Square -- one of the five original public squares of William Penn's "greene country towne." Friends of Rittenhouse Square's executive director John Armstrong will trace the development of the park from its origins as part of the Governors Woods, it's industrial heritage in the 19th century, and the development through today as one of Philadelphia's most beloved public spaces. After the tour, retire to the Black Sheep Pub and Restaurant for continued discussion.
