Franklin Seminar Private Walking Tour in Philadelphia

Franklin Seminar Private Walking Tour in Philadelphia

Few people in history have enjoyed such a symbiotic relationship with their city as Benjamin Franklin with Philadelphia. Inventor, scientist, businessman, manager, politician, philosopher and patron - Franklin embodied the eclectic but directed energy of booming Philadelphia in the mid and late 18th century. This private walking tour focuses on him, the city and their mutual legacy.

Along the way, you'll look deeply into the biography of Franklin as you visit sites in Philadelphia that relate and come away with a more contextual understanding of his impact on American history.

Your walk will vary from day to day but include such sites central to Franklin's life as the post office at Franklin Court, Christ Church and the American Philosophical Society. Your docent will spend time looking at the some of the facets of the multifaceted figure, including his work as an inventor (beyond the kite-flying story) and as a manager (his role as postmaster general was exemplary). Of course, serious attention will be given to Franklin's role in the Revolutionary War and international diplomacy as well as to the Continental Congress.
