Once Upon a Nation Story Telling Bench


  • Elfreth's Alley Association 124 Elfreth's Alley Philadelphia, PA, 19106 United States (map)

Hear the story of two of the most interesting colonial residents of the alley from award-winning Once Upon A Nation storytellers.

Visit us on Bladen’s Court, directly off of Elfreth’s Alley, and be transported back in time. Best of all, it’s completely FREE!

Stories last just a few minutes each and are told continuously during operating hours. You can start at any of the benches, all clearly marked with a “Once Upon A Nation” sign.
