The Association of Philadelphia Tour Guides holds monthly meetings which feature a guest speaker on a topic of historical significance in Philadelphia or a field trip for a behind-the-scenes tour of a local historic site. Meetings are open to aspiring and working tour guides as well as anyone with an interest in Philadelphia-focused history. Attend one meeting for free and then it is $50 to join the association for the year or $10 per monthly meeting event. The association also organizes a low-cost weekend intensive every March with comprehensive lectures on Philadelphia's history from colonial times to present day and the '12-Hour, River to River, Vine to Pine GREAT TOUR' every fall which is free to members and open to the public for a low fee. If you love and want to learn more about this amazing, vibrant city of 'firsts' - the birthplace of the United States - please join us!
APT Board Secretary Rick Heimann will share what he learned as he dug into "just another one of those details about Franklin that gets more interesting the closer you look at it."
The lecture will be virtual, on zoom, with some time afterwards for socializing.
