Exploring Historic Germantown: A Tour of Stenton
Saturday, July 13, 1:00 pm
To RSVP, contact Susan Bockius: [email protected].
Get to know the wonderful historic places of Germantown! Nineteen historic houses and museums in Northwest Philadelphia are allied to protect, preserve and promote this historical resource. NVN will be offering a series of tours over the summer and fall to several of the sites for personal introductory tours.
On Saturday, July 13, we will tour Stenton.
Stenton descended through six generations of the Logan family, one of the most important in Philadelphia. In the 18th and early 19th centuries, the Logans were prominent Quakers and were actively involved in politics in the Colony and later, the United States. The history of Stenton is rich with stories about early America, told through the experiences of one family, but also reflecting wider issues that were central to the development of the United States.
