In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania presents an exhibit honoring our 16th president. Visitors can examine photographs, prints, documents, and ephemera detailing Lincoln’s life and death.
Join curator Maria DiElsi for a behind-the-scenes look at this exhibit. Enjoy a reception with soft pretzels and a Mummers string band. “Philadelphia Stories” features more than 60 photographs, drawn from the historic archives of the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Records and HSP's PhilaPlace project.
