Member Saturday: Preserving Eastern State’s Historic Wall

September 19, 2020, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Member Saturday: Preserving Eastern State’s Historic Wall

Members only. Registration required.

Have you ever found yourself staring in awe at Eastern State’s nearly 200-year-old, 30-foot high stone perimeter wall? The penitentiary’s iconic façade is striking, but its size makes maintaining and preserving it quite the task. We complete as-needed repairs, but now, we’re developing a long-term strategy to better preserve this architectural treasure.

Join Liz Trumbull, manager, historic preservation and architectural conservation, and Sally Elk, president and CEO, for an in-depth discussion about these ongoing efforts to craft a more comprehensive preservation plan.

Please note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this event may be held online. If we do gather on site, an online option will still be made available. Register now and keep an eye on your email for updates. A Zoom invitation will be emailed 24 hours in advance.

This event is free for all members. Reserve free tickets online or call 215-236-5111 x224. Space is limited. 

Join us at 11:00 am on the third Saturday of every month for this special members-only program. Not a Member? Join today! Questions? Email us at [email protected]
