Wednesday February 12

5:30 PM  –  7:00 PM

 

Join us for an intimate tour of Carpenters’ Hall with Carpenters’ Company Historian, Roger Moss. Completed in 1774, Carpenters’ Hall is the home of The Carpenters’ Company, the oldest extant trade guild in the United States. Founded in 1724, the Company has been a social network and professional organization for the built community of Philadelphia for 295 years. Notably, in 1774, the First Continental Congress met for six weeks on the first floor of Carpenters’ Hall. This meeting formed the basis for collaboration between the colonies to jointly address their grievances with Britain. Today, Carpenters’ Hall remains a meeting hall for the Company. 

 

Roger Moss, formerly the director of the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, has been the historian of the Carpenters’ Company since 2003. During this hour and a half tour with Mr. Moss, he will lead our group behind the scenes at Carpenters’ Hall to show us some of the company’s most hidden and prized objects.

 

Meet at Carpenters' Hall, 320 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19106.
