Amid the ever-changing landscape of downtown Philadelphia at the start of the 21st century, it can sometimes seem as though much of the history of this venerable city has been lost in the name of progress. But the treasures of the past three centuries are still all around--you just have to know where to look for them. This guide leads history buffs on 12 separate walks through neighborhoods where the past remains alive.
You'll visit buildings, streets, gardens, and parks, dating from the colonial period to the Victorian era, that still stand as proud testaments to the city's past. This guide, with its maps, photos, and extensive index, is arranged to help readers follow a logical path from site to site. It also includes information about which sites can be toured. This is an indispensable guide for visitors to Philadelphia, for residents who want to learn more about their city's past, and for anyone who has an interest in the history of one of our country's oldest and greatest cities.
