Hilary Iris Lowe’s Managing History in 2015 had a semester-long group project. Each graduate history student was assigned one of five research topics/themes and researched, designed, revised, and then reflected upon a self-guided tour for the Powel House. They worked with PhilaLandmarks staff on each topic theme.
We focused on five themes:
- Elizabeth Willing Powel
- Samuel Powel – Loyalist or Patriot Mayor
- Preservation History at the Powel House
- The Jewish Quarter and the Powel House
- Society Hill and Powel House as part of thr Workshop of the World
