Join us for this special themed tour that will take you behind the scenes of Germantown's eighteenth century mansions. Dr. Stephen Hague, author of The Gentleman's House in the British Atlantic World and former Stenton Director, will lead a guided tour of three leading historic sites in Germantown. The tour will position these houses in a broad Anglo-American context, and explore such issues as how much they cost, who designed and built them, where they were built, how they were furnished, and how people lived in them. Ticket includes bus transportation, admission to three house museums, and buffet lunch. Registration is required, $45.00 fee includes lunch. To reserve tickets, call 215-329-7312 or email programs@stenton.org. Tickets are also available online.
