The Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia,
launched in 2002, is a free self-guided walking journey
through America’s most historic square mile featuring
more than 30 historic sites.

Kindly RSVP by September 1, 2004 to 215.525.1776 or info@TheConstitutional.com
Space is limited. Refreshments will be provided.

The modern-day Constitutional Convention will be moderated by Ron Thomson, an independent consultant and the former Chief of Interpretive Support with Independence National Historical Park, who worked for the National Park Service for more than 20 years.

The Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia has retained Mr. Thomson to enhance the existing route of The Constitutional. To that end, we invite you to get involved and share more of the engaging personal stories associated with America’s quest for freedom during the Colonial and Revolutionary Eras, including the writing and implementation of the Constitution of the United States. Expanded narrative and new programming for The Constitutional Walking Tour will reintroduce the stories of the men and women who created the Republic to local residents, as well as to visitors from around the globe.

On September 14, 2004, please join The Constitutional Walking Tour at the National Constitution Center to participate in and brainstorm plans for enhancing The Constitutional. Bring your ideas for stories that connect Philadelphia’s historic sites and attractions and help us:

  • To augment The Constitutional Walking Tour from a listing of sites to a more engaging and interconnected storyline that will entertain and educate visitors in compelling ways,

  • To promote The Constitutional Walking Tour in a manner which reawakens visitors and local residents alike to Philadelphia’s unique history while increasing visitation to the historic sites along The Constitutional, and

  • To invite broader participation in The Constitutional Walking Tour by stakeholders in the Independence Mall area ecosystem including interpreters, historians, historic sites, the tourism industry, individuals, residents, government officials, etc.
