Historic Guided Tours of Congregation B'nai Abraham Synagogue, St. Peter's Church, and Christ Church
Enjoy tours of these three wonderful historic places of worship.
(1) Congregation B'nai Abraham Synagogue: Visit the oldest building in Philadelphia built for use as a synagogue and still in use as such! Congretation B'nai Abraham has been the spiritual home for Philadelphia-area Jews for 125 years. The synagogue, designed by Philadelphia architect Charles Lewis Bolton, was built in 1910. It has since survived a fire caused by a lightening strike and remains beautifully kept by an influential and historic congregation.
(2) St. Peter's Church: The first service at St. Peter’s Church was held on September 4, 1761, and the church has been in continuous use ever since. The church was designed and built by Robert Smith in the mid-Georgian auditory style, with the classical lines and clear glass windows of the Age of Reason. Much of the church remains as it was in the eighteenth century, including te original high-backed box pews, which George and Martha Washington often frequented. In addition, many notable Philadelphians are buried in the small churchyard, including Revolutionary War hero Commodore John Hazelwood and the painter Charles Wilson Peale.
(3) Christ Church and Burial Ground: Founded in 1695, Christ Church was known as ""The Nation's Church"" because of the famous Revolution-era leaders who worshiped here. The building has long been considered one of the finest Georgian structures in America. The steeple, financed by a lottery organized by Benjamin Franklin, was the tallest structure in the colonies for 56 years. The Burial Ground is the final resting place of some of our most prominent leaders, including Benjamin Franklin and Dr. Benjamin Rush.
