Take a walk of almost two miles, stepping back in history to discover the historic and architectural treasures along several of the oldest streets in Mt. Airy. The tour begins in front of the Lutheran Theological Seminary on Germantown Avenue. We will discuss Mt. Airy's many "pasts": Native American, Revolutionary War, railroad, and the development of Mt. Airy as a streetcar suburb, as well as the contributions of George Woodward and others in the 20th century. The tour ends in Fairmount Park near the Cresheim Creek. Wear walking shoes and bring water. Not recommended for young children. Park close to the Allen Lane train station.
