Step Back in Time This Saturday

July 9, 2012

This Saturday, July 14, promises to be a perfect day to visit Historic Germantown. Every Second Saturday through October, all fifteen sites are open from 12 PM to 4 PM. Spend your afternoon experiencing the fascinating history of the neighborhood and of the nation.

Stenton (4601 North 18th Street)

See the burial site of Revolutionary War soldiers, visit a station on the Underground Railroad, or explore the house where George Washington stayed during the summer over two hundred years ago.

Wyck (6026 Germantown Avenue) will also be hosting special festivals throughout the summer as part of every Second Saturday. This weekend, come on out from 11 AM to 4 PM for Trinkets, Tales, and Tomatoes: Things We Treasure.

Cost of admission varies depending on the site. If you intend to visit multiple sites, we suggest that you consider purchasing the Historic Germantown Passport, which allows the bearer one visit to each of the fifteen attractions over the course of one year.

Passports can be purchased online or at any of the sites for $15 for individuals or $25 for families of four.

Don’t forget to save the date for next month’s Second Saturday, scheduled for August 11.

    The air-conditioned historic 1770 Mennonite Meetinghouse is just half a block from the festivities at Wyck, so come on up, take a break and cool off while taking a look at the table where America’s first written protest against slavery was signed in 1688!
