Philadelphia was once home to some of the Mid-Atlantic’s most wealthy and influential elite. Travelers who make their way to the Powel House will venture back in time as they wander the elegant and ornate halls where Elizabeth and Samuel Powel once lived.

Close friends of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, the Powels were one of the original power couples in the City of Brotherly Love. Visitors can check out the historic home that’s furnished with all of their personal effects, including Powel portraits, handmade clocks and other family heirlooms. There’s even a letter sent by George Washington himself.

Travelers can see the Powel House on its own, or include it as a stop in a historic walking tour of Philadelphia. Whether it’s a once-off exploration or part of a history-themed trip, the Powel House is worth a stop for history lovers and families.
