Architect Horace Trumbauer (1868-1938) is well known for the wide range of residential, commercial and civic structures he designed in and around Philadelphia. He was a master at reinterpreting the various historical styles of classical design.  He worked for many of Philadelphia's prominent families of the Gilded Age producing a number of iconic masterpieces. The presentation will highlight a number of projects he and his firm designed over a nearly 40 year period from 1891 to 1930.
