A Great Stroll with Some Great History

April 20, 3 pm5 pm.

If you are looking for a combination of some great Pennsylvania history just with some spring weather — please consider signing up for the Ambler History Walking Tours, led by the Ambler Storytellers, a committee of the Wissahickon Valley Historical Society. The tours are scheduled on Saturdays — April 6th, April 20th, May 4th, May 18, June 1st, and June 15th — starting at 3 PM.

The tours are free, but the Storytellers request a $10 donation to the historical society.

The tour takes approximately one hour and is complete with photographs, facts, history, and stories from and past along Butler Avenue. Some portions of Butler Pike date as far back as 1712 when the original plans for the road were created.

Like many Pennsylvania towns including Philadelphia itself, the borough of Ambler can be traced back to the arrival of William Penn’s Quakers in 1682. William and George Harmer were among the Quakers who bought a 408-acre tract from Penn in and around what now is Ambler Borough in 1682.

Each tour includes a voucher for a beverage at Tannery Run Brew Works. For more information, please visit the Wissahickon Valley Historical Society website. ###
