Historic Germantown Logo

Awbury Arboretum is a proud partner with Historic Germantown, a partnership of 15 extraordinary Philadelphia houses, destinations and museums.

In Historic Germantown you can experience the very roots of American liberty as you learn the stories of those who fought for it and dared to dream of freedom for all people.

Located just minutes from Center City, Historic Germantown is where Philadelphia’s only Revolutionary War Battle was fought. It is where the first-ever American protest against slavery was written. And where one of the few remaining houses on the Underground Railroad still stands. You definitely don’t want to miss the full experience.
