HISTORIC GERMANTOWN HAS A RELAXED, BACKYARD FEEL.
BUT OUR HISTORY WASN'T ALWAYS THIS WAY.
IT’S WHERE ONE OF PHILADELPHIA’S REVOLUTIONARY WAR BATTLES WAS FOUGHT.
WHERE THE FIRST-EVER AMERICAN PROTEST AGAINST SLAVERY WAS WRITTEN.
WHERE A HOUSE ON THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD STILL STANDS.
WHERE THE STORY OF EVERY KIND OF FREEDOM IS TOLD . . .
. . . IN UNIQUELY PERSONAL TERMS.
JUST MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN PHILADELPHIA.
Explore Freedom's Backyard
