Thematic Tour: The Declaration of Independence

We all associate July 4th with a fun day marking our nation’s independence. But what was it really like in Philadelphia during the summer of 1776.  Take a docent-led tour of John Jay’s Bedford House to discover how Jay and the other Founders felt about independence from Britain and what the Declaration of Independence did for Americans. Tours are scheduled for 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, and 4pm. Please purchase tickets at the Carriage Barn Education & Visitor Center. Regular admission fees apply.
