Starting with the Lenape (Delaware) Indians, the original inhabitants of both Philadelphia and the surrounding region, we trace the growth and development of William Penn's "green country towne" to it's current incarnation as a UNESCO world heritage site.
Some of the topics covered:
Quakers. Design of Philadelphia. Christ Church (photo stop). Revolutionary War. Liberty Bell (photo stop). Slavery.
I live off a diet of facts; each new morsel is like a slice of Grandma's apple cobbler. Did you know the first cult was formed right outside of Philadelphia? How about the first abolitionist protest being here as well? Maybe you knew that only tourists get cheesesteaks from Pat's or Geno's? No worries, if you did not know, that is why I am here. As a member of the Association of Philadelphia Tour Guides, Pennsylvania Historical Society, and a historian in training, my tour will be an equal mix of history, food, drinks, and conversation. Featuring the Olde City, William Penn, Manayunk, tastykakes, craft beer, and how to use “jawn”in a sentence, my tours are a crash course in Philadelphia wit out having to be from here.
