“Fascinating Facts about William Penn, Philadelphia and Even Quaker Oats Most People Don’t Yet Know” is a fast-paced look at Penn’s “Greene Countrie Towne.” Philadelphia tour guide, copywriter and history lover Jim Murphy will cover over 300 years of Philadelphia history in about 30 minutes. You’ll view unique historic photos and paintings, learn about some of the city’s past struggles and successes, and hopefully come away with a new respect for the under-appreciated man who founded our city … and changed our nation. It should be an educational and entertaining night. Don’t miss this special event co-sponsored by the Historic Gloria Dei Preservation Corporation and Queen Village Neighbors Association.
