PhilaLandmarks will be hosting its second annual "Farewell to Summer" fundraiser: "The Great Oyster Craze, A Celebration in the Raw" at the Powel House in Society Hill on September 12th, 2019. Support our 18th century historic houses and learn about oyster history of the early republic with an end of summer oyster garden party! We will explore why oysters were so popular in late 18th and early 19th century America while sipping brews and slurping oysters in one of Philadelphia's finest city gardens.  Enjoy oysters, hors d'oeuvres, beer & wine.  All proceeds will benefit the four historic houses of PhilaLandmarks.
