Annual Spring Kickoff: Penman of the Revolution

On Thursday, March 23rd, 2023, Arch Street Meeting House is hosting the Annual Spring Kickoff: Penman of the Revolution as we celebrate the museum's reopening for the Spring season.

The evening will include a cocktail hour, an opportunity to explore the museum, and a presentation by John Dickinson, portrayed by friend of ASMHPT, Doug Thomas.

Join the "Penman of the Revolution" as he discusses his role in the journey that took us from colonies to country. John Dickinson used his wit, intellect, and faith to guide his actions as one of our lesser-known Founding Fathers. Although he refused to vote for the Declaration of Independence, he was instrumental in the creation of our national government and drafted many of our founding documents, including the First Amendment.
