A Walk on Bishop White’s Streets – Walking Tour

December 3 @ 12:30 pm


Join Education Coordinator Matthew Havens for this special one-time-only tour!

In celebration of Christ Church’s 328th anniversary and the 275th anniversary of William White’s birth, Matthew will lead “A Walk on Bishop White’s Streets: A Look at his Life and the Houses of Worship in his City.” This tour through Old City and Society Hill will transport you to the past – at the start of both America and the Episcopal Church.

William White served as the rector of the United Churches of Christ Church, and St. Peter’s (and for a shorter time St. James), from 1779 until his death in 1836. He would have been a familiar face on the streets of Philadelphia, a city that welcomed worshippers of many different denominations.

Tour group will meet in the North Garden at 12:30PM -- this tour runs 90 minutes.

Advanced registration is required -- use the Eventbrite link below.
