Upstairs room at the New Century Trust, 1307 Locust St.
Philadelphia was once famously “clubby” and although many were literally “Old Boys’ Clubs,” women developed their own organizations as well, a number of which survive in Center City today. Join the New Century Trust’s Meg Kelly for a tour that will include visits to the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America, Pennsylvania Chapter, the Cosmopolitan Club, the New Century Trust, and the former site of the Magdalen Society.
All tours are free and open to the public, but space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve a space on a tour, and for more tour information and schedules, visit Hidden City Philadelphia's website.
This series of walking tours is a public program scheduled in conjunction with the exhibition Living as Form (The Nomadic Version), which is on view at The Galleries at Moore through March 16.
Organized in partnership with Hidden City Philadelphia, an organization that celebrates the power of place to inspire social action, Impossible Buildings & Contested Futures is a series of walking tours that contextualize the city’s social, political, historical and physical landscape.
This program has been supported in part by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, the Federal-State partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
