The Preservation Alliance’s 5th Annual Architectural Dinner takes us to one of the area’s most historic yet least recognized landmarks: The Philadelphia Lazaretto. The oldest surviving quarantine facility in the Western Hemisphere, the Lazaretto served as the gateway to Philadelphia in a crucial period of the nation's growth. The evening will begin with cocktails on the long front porch overlooking the Delaware River. Then a full-course dinner will be served in the Lazaretto’s newly renovated main gallery. Dr. David Barnes, Associate Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania and author of a forthcoming book about the history of the Lazaretto, will speak on the fascinating and multi-faceted tale of this stately landmark on the banks of the Delaware.
