Logan Square
Walk AND Crawl Tours

Join your friends and neighbors. You’ll be supporting the Logan Square Long Range Plan — an important effort to improve a vital commercial, residential and cultural district.

Come explore the many treasures of the Logan Square Neighborhood with Mark Flood, LSNA member. The Logan Square Architectural History Tour Series is divided into South, Central, and North Logan Square.

Along with parks, plazas, fountains and public art, Logan Square has over 150 years of historical and architecturally significant buildings, including four National Historic Landmarks.

Explore an historic Philadelphia neighborhood with everything from 2-story rowhomes to towering skyscrapers, from eclectic Victorian to exuberant post-modern.

Find out why City Hall has walls 22 feet thick. Learn what’s missing on the facade of the Academy of Fine Arts. Understand why the Parkway was built. Discover Philadelphia’s third mint.

And for the “crawl” part: each tour will end with a gathering at a local pub with a history of its own.

When: Three successive Mondays, starting July 23rd.
Three successive Tuesdays, starting August 14th.

Where: 6 PM at a different location for each tour.
