Hosted by the Philadelphia Chapter
Sunday, October 30
with Jim Mundy, Historian for the Union League Legacy Foundation
Horace Tumbauer was Philadelphia's most prolific architect, whose work can be found across the United States. He is best known, perhaps, for his New York and Newport Gilded Age mansions. In Philadelphia, however, his firm also designed a large number of institutional buildings as well as private residences. Join Jim Mundy, Historian for the Union League Legacy Foundation, for a walking tour that explores Trumbauer-designed buildings that have housed Philadelphia's premier cultural and social institutions over the past century.
The tour will begin at the Union League of Philadelphia, where we will learn about the exterior and interior spaces of this landmark institution. Our tour will then proceed through Center City to include such buildings as the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, the Racquet Club, the original Ritz Carlton Hotel, the St. James apartment house, the Widener Building, and the Land Title Building. We will travel trough the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood to see examples of Trumbauer's domestic architecture, and will we end at Rittenhouse Square.
