Join us as we bring Birch’s Views to life! Enjoy a two-mile, two-hour tour of Birch’s Views in Philadelphia’s Historic District! On this tour, you will encounter Congress Hall, the State House (now Independence Hall), the back of the State House, and Pennsylvania Hospital! You will also learn about scenes depicted in Birch’s Views that display buildings that are no longer standing, such as the Alms House, New Theatre, and Surgeons Hall; places that, today, can only be seen through the eyes of William Birch. The Walking Tour will begin at 10:00 am. This tour will depart from Congress Hall, and will conclude outside of LCP.
This tour is free for Library Company Members or Pay-What-You-Wish with a suggested donation of $10 and a minimum of $1.
