The Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1793

November 14 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

| $10.00
LHSOctNew

We may have had enough of the Covid-19 pandemic, but endemic and pandemic diseases were not unknown to our Colonial ancestors either. While they often had to cope with much less scientific knowledge than we have today, andĀ evenĀ had their own quack cures, some basics, like social distancing and masking, were practiced then too. This special Living History Theater tour will take you through the house where costumed actors will present scenes related to the Yellow Fever epidemic that raged through Philadelphia in 1793. During that time, country retreats like Graeme Park were a way to escape the diseased and populous city and hopefully avoid falling ill.

Tours are at 12:30, 1:00, 1:30, and 2:00 and are $10 for 13+ and $7 for 6-12 year olds and members of the Friends of Graeme Park. Tickets are available in the visitors’ center the day of the event.
