The Museum of the American Revolution found a home in Philadelphia.
Freshman Councilman Mark Squilla introduced yesterday proposed zoning changes to allow for the construction of the museum on Chestnut and 3rd streets.
Initially, the museum was going to be built in Valley Forge National Historical Park then it was later bumped to a nearby location – both times it was met with resistance. Finally, the museum found a home in the city’s historic district.
“I’m excited about bringing any type of tourism to the city,” said Squilla. “What better place than where the revolution got started.”
