Handwritten from Germantown

We recently completed a pilot event http://www.freedomsbackyard.com/programs-events/first-families-geocaching-creative-reflection-with-yolanda-wisher/ for our project at Historic RittenhouseTown, the site of the first paper mill in British North America. We used a mix of geocaching, creative writing, and dance to engage locals ages 6 to 70 in exploring issues of genealogy, class, and privilege. We’re moving towards developing a new Historic Germantown youth program based on similar practices and themes.
