St. Peter’s Episcopal Church Tours and Activities

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church
St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is a still-functioning historic church in the Society Hill area of downtown Philadelphia. First built around 1760, the building itself is on the National Register of Historic Places, and its unique design has the altar on the one end and an elevated pulpit on the other, so there’s is no front or back to the church. The church was built as an expansion to the nearby Christ Church, and many founding fathers worshipped in both locations, including George and Martha Washington.

Practical Info

St Peter’s Episcopal Church is located on the east side of Philadelphia, a 10-minute walk from Independence Mall. As an active and operating church, St. Peter’s is open daily, but be mindful if church services are in session. Guides are available every weekend, from 11 am to 3 pm on Saturdays, and from 1 to 3 pm on Sundays.

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.
