Event Details

Join Stenton and Adrienne Whaley, Director of Education and Community Engagement at the Museum of the American Revolution, as we construct Philadelphia through the eyes of Dinah, a formerly enslaved woman who lived and labored at Stenton. Stories about Revolutionary War era in our city abound, but rarely from the point of view of Philadelphia’s Black residents. During this virtual event, attendees will learn about the daily lives of free and enslaved populations, luminaries like the Forten family, and the origins of the community and culture found in our city today.

Stenton is one of the earliest, best-preserved, and most authentic historic houses in Philadelphia. Completed in 1730 as a country-seat, plantation house for James Logan - Secretary to William Penn; merchant, politician, justice, scientist, and scholar – Stenton was home to six generations of the Logan family, as well as a diverse community of servants and enslaved Africans, including Dinah, who lived and worked at Stenton for over 60 years. Furnished with 18th- and 19th-century Logan family objects, and remaining in little-altered condition, a visit to Stenton offers an unparalleled experience of early 4601 N. 18th St. Philadelphia, PA 19140
