Before 219: A Look at the Athenaeum Before its Move to Washington Square – October 13, 2020

Join the Athenaeum Curator for a brief history lesson on the Athenaeum of Philadelphia

Tuesday, October 13, 12:00-12:45pm
Athenaeum of Philadelphia
219 S Sixth Street, Philadelphia, PA
RSVP info:

The Athenaeum is so strongly identified with its 1847 National Historic Landmark Building that it’s easy to forget that we spent our first 33 years somewhere else. In this illustrated Zoom meeting, Curator of Architecture Bruce Laverty will discuss the life and times of the institution before 219 South 6th Street became its home.
