Homeschool Program: PAs Land and People

February 8 @ 10:00 am


Pennsylvania is not one place but many. From 1870 to 1920, T.M. Fowler created panoramic views of cities and towns, including many in Pennsylvania.

Using these hand-drawn images, Senior Curator of History, Dr. Curt Miner will discuss how regionally-specific natural resources transformed Pennsylvania communities during the Industrial era. Using our Giant Map of Pennsylvania, participants will learn about the various regions within the Commonwealth that together define the place we call Pennsylvania and create a custom passport to “travel the state.”


Registration and pre-payment is required.

Each program starts at 10am and is expected to last 1 1/2 hours. Programs will be open for a limited number of participants.
