Philadelphia was once home to some of the Mid-Atlantic’s most wealthy and influential elite. Travelers who make their way to the Powel House will venture back in time as they wander the elegant and ornate halls where Elizabeth and Samuel Powel once lived.

Close friends of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, the Powels were one of the original power couples in the City of Brotherly Love. Visitors can check out the historic home that’s furnished with all of their personal effects, including Powel portraits, handmade clocks and other family heirlooms. There’s even a letter sent by George Washington himself.

Travelers can see the Powel House on its own, or include it as a stop in a historic walking tour of Philadelphia. Whether it’s a once-off exploration or part of a history-themed trip, the Powel House is worth a stop for history lovers and families.

Private Architectural Walking Tour of Colonial Philadelphia

Private Architectural Walking Tour of Colonial Philadelphia

On the Colonial Era Streets and Historic Architecture Tour, you will learn the origin stories of several of the oldest buildings in Philadelphia. See Independence Hall - a beautifully proportioned building of perfect architectural balance and symmetry that is more evocative of a country house than an urban structure. A similarly outstanding building is Powell House, built in 1765 and elaborately refurbished by its second owner Samuel Powel (1738–1793) and often described as the "finest Georgian row house in the city". George Washington, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were frequent house guests in this grand pile and would attend Sunday morning services at St. Peter’s, a historic Episcopal church, and our next port of call. At each turn on the route, your guide will share stories of the old buildings, the preservation efforts that went into keeping the structure, and the way the city is telling its founding story.
