Fall is around the corner and with it, the creepy stories of Philadelphia’s past 

Friday, October 14, 2016 we celebrate 5 years of Young Friends with our annual Dark Side of Philadelphia History party. A party that celebrates the macabre stories of our city. Come out to enjoy live music, Tarot Readings from the fabulous Marilyn Sukonick-Zeff, and ghost stories like only Philadelphia can tell. (see below for more information)

Also enjoy an open bar and appetizers when you purchase your tickets.  Speaking of tickets, make sure to also purchase your auction tickets and raffle tickets ahead of time.  All money raised will go to a good cause!

Attend this event for a good cause

We are raising money to conserve the wood Statue of George Washington carved by William Rush which resides in the Second Bank Portrait Gallery and to preserve a rare silk quilt created by three Quaker women in 1761.  Help us protect our history!

Historic Philadelphia Inc.

Be a part of the jury at the Witch Trial

In 1684, Margaret Mattson was accused by her neighbors of witchcraft. Some the the crimes she was accused of was bewitching cows; they stop producing milk and killing one with her “spirit” as well as other crimes.William Penn presided over the trial in 1684.

In 2016, you get to be the jury and decide if she really is a witch or not. Presented by our Friends at Pennsbury Manor, this program will occur at 7 pm and 8 pm during the party. Come ask Mistress Mattson your questions and decide for yourself… is she guilty of witchcraft?
