Convened in Philadelphia on May 25th 1787, the Constitutional Convention was originally established to revise the Articles of Confederation, but when the delegates adjourned at the end of July, a whole new form of government had been proposed. To commemorate the 230th anniversary of the Constitutional Convention take a docent-led tour of John Jay’s Bedford House, highlighting his position as a strong proponent of a national government and his involvement in the ratification of the Constitution. Tours are scheduled at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. Please purchase tickets at the Carriage Barn Education and Visitor Center. Regular admission fees apply.
