Elfreth’s Alley will host its ongoing First Friday “Bits & Bites of History Series” on October 6th from 5:00-8:00 pm. The evening will include a short discussions about when Elfreth’s Alley began to be noticed and viewed as a tourist destination both locally and nationally; as well as some of the various things that people have collected featuring Elfreth’s Alley’s image.

This event will be accompanied by a cider tasting by our sponsor, Commonwealth Ciders.
