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
We invite you to visit the nations longest National Historic District, where the stories of American freedom are told in uniquely personal terms.
Visit each of our sixteen historic attractions for just $15 for an individual, or $25 for a family of four. More information
