Participate in Arch Street Meeting House’s brand new walking tour of Quaker sites in Old City, Philadelphia!
The tour begins with a brief exploration of the historic burial grounds at ASMH before continuing on a walking tour of important Quaker sites throughout the neighborhood. This is not just your run-of-the-mill famous Founding Fathers’ tour! It is perfect for visitors who are seeking a different side of Philadelphia history.
About the tour: Visitors will start their walking tour at Arch Street Meeting House, then continue to the Betsy Ross House and on to Welcome Park, the site of William Penn’s first residence in Philadelphia. After snaking their way through Independence National Historical Park, the group will stop at various other sites with a Quaker twist.
