HISTORIC GERMANTOWN INVITES YOUR GROUP
to embark on an adventure in one of America’s most historic neighborhoods. Experience how people lived in Colonial times, learn about a time when local families watched soldiers march through the streets and heard bullets whizzing past their front doors, or visit beautiful gardens and urban homesteads complete with chickens and bees.

You can participate in our History Hunters program with coordinated visits to four sites or schedule an afternoon group tour for just one or two sites.

History Hunters

Join the Hunt for History in your own backyard!

The History Hunters Youth Reporter Program is an exciting, literacy-based educational program that takes students to four exceptional historic houses during the school year. Students in the program will become investigative reporters, writing about their experiences with the history, buildings and artifacts of their community with visits to Stenton, The Johnson House, Cliveden and Wyck.

By participating in the History Hunters program students will explore how early settlers and Native Americans interacted, how one house in Germantown became the center of a fierce battle during the American Revolution, how children lived long ago, and what it might have been like to escape from slavery on the Underground Railroad.

School Group Tours

Historic Germantown offers a variety of ways for groups of all sizes, interests, and ages to explore our neighborhood, browse our museums, and discover something new about American history spanning three centuries.
