Happy Hour with the Historian: The “Philadelphia White House”
August 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| $5.00
Join us on the lovely evening grounds of Graeme Park (indoors in cooler/inclement weather) for a few drinks, munchies, and 30-40 minute talk on a topic of historical interest. $5/cover charge; cash bar and food. No cover charge for members. Bar opens at 6 pm, lecture starts at 7 pm.
The Deshler-Morris House in Germantown, also known as the Philadelphia White House, was President Washington’s retreat during the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1793. The house was restored beautifully in 2009 and then closed due to lack of funds. Take a rare inside look into the beautifully furnished rooms and hear about the process for researching and interpreting modern museums with local historian, Roddy Davis.
