Mitä teet

Discover early Philadelphia's history from its skeletons in the closet. First, we'll find that some founding fathers brought forth more than just a new nation, but children outside of their marriages. We'll hear one of Benjamin Franklin's salacious letters, learn about Alexander Hamilton's affair with a married woman that threatened to end his career, and discuss the connection between Jefferson and his enslaved servant, Sally Hemings, exploring what might have been her perspective. We'll learn about 18th century sex work, and about the beguiling, but unhinged wife of Benedict Arnold, his partner in treason. My tours are narrative driven, brought to life through images, as well as words from letters, diaries, and newspapers. Join me to uncover the sometimes heartbreaking, always fascinating stories of early Philadelphia.

I'm an avid history enthusiast, and Philadelphia's vibrant and complicated past, especially its untold and unknown stories, fascinate me. As a member of the Association of Philadelphia Tour Guides, I love taking advantage its workshops and historic talks. And as a dedicated volunteer for the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, I’ve spent hours diving into primary sources that tell the story of my city. In more than a decade of professional work in arts administration, I've led countless history-focused continual learning programs for libraries, historic sites, and museums. I'm excited to share what I've learned--the true and often offbeat stories of those before me who once called Philadelphia home.

Missä tulette olemaan

We'll walk Independence Mall and the President's House landmark, see the courtyard where Ben Franklin’s house once stood, as well as the beautiful church where his wife prayed, perhaps for him to come home after abandoning her. We'll also talk about the bawdy houses that gave Philadelphia the name "sin city," stand at the spot where Alexander Hamilton and his paramour rendezvoused, and see other fascinating sites!

Lisää vinkkejä

This 18 and older tour is drizzle or shine, but I'll modify, shorten, or possibly cancel if weather would affect our experience. Our tour will run about 1.5 to 1.75 hours. If you'd like a date/time that isn't listed, reach out! I may be able to accomodate.
