THE PRESIDENT'S HOUSE: Freedom and Slavery in Making a New Nation
Dreams of Freedom and Tales of Slavery infused the President's House in the 1790s.
The interpretive program of the Kelly/Maiello and Daniel J. Keating Co. Design Build Team invites Independence National Historical Park visitors to "Listen In" to these narratives, recaptured across the centuries.
At eight distinct locations visitors experience the six substantive themes of the presentation: The House and the People Who Lived there; The Executive Branch of the U. S. Government; The System and Methods of Slavery; African-American Philadelphia, especially free African-American; The Move to Freedom, and History Lost and Found.
