Two Educational Stories: Germantown’s Concord School House and the Old Academy in East Falls 

Free, but donations and new memberships welcome!

The 1775 Concord School House on Germantown Avenue, and the Old Academy on Indian Queen Lane, both began as community efforts responding to critical needs. Each found a lively new use when they lost their founding purposes – one as a historic site, the other as the home of a Community Theater, the Old Academy Players.
