Architecture Walking Tour: Around Washington Square

Saturday, Jul 13, 2013 2:00p

Meet at Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, center of Washington Sq.

Walk around one of William Penn's original planned public parks. Learn how this square served as a burial ground for over 1,200 Revolutionary War soldiers, then as a potter's field before receiving its present name in 1825. See The Athenaeum, the first Italian Renaissance building in the US, & learn how the Square became home to the publishing industry in the early 20th century.
