Sunday, November 10, 3-4:30pm, Sanctuary
This lecture by noted cultural historian and Furness scholar, George E. Thomas, will link the progressive values of the Furness family with the rising transformation of American industrial culture in Philadelphia and the nation. Rev. William Henry Furness was our church’s first settled minister and his son, Frank Furness, was the architect of our church and many other prominent buildings in the Philadelphia-area.
This lecture will be preceded and followed by an Open House with tours of the buildings and a new exhibit highlighting the lecture's theme. The lecture and exhibit are being hosted by Friends of 2125 Chestnut Street, the 501(c)(3) focused on the needs of our building.
