An 18th Century Tourist

“Took a walk…by the riverside. Reviewed the ruins of that ancient pile; Some of the very thick walls still remaining, and the Lintel that was over the door lays near the ruins – dated 16 W.P. 83, scarcely legible. It is perhaps, the remains of the oldest building of any account, in Pennsylvania.”

(Elizabeth Drinker, Journal Entry, 1797)
