The Philadelphia Area Architecture of Horace Trumbauer

Raised in Jenkintown, architect Horace Trumbauer achieved national renown for his wide range of residential, commercial and civic structures he designed in and around Philadelphia.  During the American renaissance in architecture, he masterfully interpreted the classical styles.  

Join us as Society President David Rowland shares the history of some of the beautiful buildings Trumbauer designed in the area, with a focus on those in the northern suburbs of Philadelphia.
