Philly Streets

Philly Streets

Philadelphia’s streets are as varied as her residents. Whether big and busy
boulevards, quiet tree-lined lanes, or gray back alleys with asphalt as
weathered as the old brick row homes that line them, each of our city’s
streets bears a story all its own. Many of those stories end at the same
figurative stop sign, however. From Shippen Lane to Gratz Street,
Rittenhouse Square to Wayne Avenue, their namesake and extended family
origins now rest at Laurel Hill Cemetery. Join us on this twilight trip
through Laurel Hill – Philadelphia’s ultimate dead end – to learn more about
how the roads upon which we live and travel earned their place on the map.

Event Price:$20/person or $18/students
