Event Details

                             

In collaboration with Temple Contemporary's Funeral for a Home project, Bruce Laverty of the Athenaeum will lead a trolley tour that explores the lineage of the Philadelphia rowhome, from the eighteenth century to the present day.  Tour stops include Elfreth's Alley, Spruce Street's Portico Row, and Rittenhouse East, with opportunities to enter homes along the way.  The tour will conclude with a visit to Temple Contemporary’s current exhibit examining the history of vernacular architecture before returning to Elfreth's Alley for drop-off.

 

Vernacular Architecture: A Trolley Tour of Philadelphia's Historic Rowhomes is a public program of Temple Contemporary's city-wide initiative Funeral for a Home.  Funeral for a Home is funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
