Architectural Tour of Fishtown


Source

Young Involved Philadelphia continues its 'Explore Philadelphia' Summer Series with an exciting and insightful walking tour of Fishtown.

Situated to the northeast of Center City, Fishtown figured prominently in Philadelphia's great industrial age of the late 19th/early 20th century when it was developed to house many of the workers who were employed by the major industries that built factories in this part of the city. Discover how Fishtown's residences are going through restoration as it becomes a sought after location in which to live.

We'll head over to Memphis Taproom after the tour to enjoy some afternoon lunch and drinks (lunch and drinks not included in ticket cost so be sure to bring extra cash.)

This tour is brought to you by the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia.

Buy tickets ($10) here.
