Please join us for guided tour of this exhibit which honors the second clause in the first line of the Union League’s by-laws, “Every member shall support the Constitution, and the free enterprise system.”
The exhibit celebrates entrepreneurship, with a focus on nine entrepreneurs, from William Penn to Atwater Kent. Individuals whose vision, hard work, and willingness to take risks helped build the City of Philadelphia. See the inventions, artifacts, and important documents from business and industry that bring to life the birth and rise of Philadelphia. See the Thomas Holme’s original 1683 Portraiture of Philadelphia map, the money box of “Financier of the Revolution” Robert Morris, Stephen Girard’s desk, and nearly 100 other original artifacts and documents of iconic Philadelphia entrepreneurs.
Guest Curator and Historian and Archivist Jack McCarthy will share his insights into preparing this exhibit.
