Party Like It's 1976!

Party Like It's 1976!

Hear ye! Hear ye! Do you know that Philadelphia is getting ready for our country’s 250th birthday in 2026? Join local historian Jim Segrave-Daly at The Finley House, home of Radnor Historical Society-- also RML’s partner for this in-person, lively event. Jim will talk about how Philadelphia and its surrounding countryside celebrated America’s bicentennial almost fifty years ago. From President Ford’s visit to Valley Forge to award-winning director John Huston’s filming of the 1976 docudrama film, Independence, we will revisit that past, party in the present, and revel for our future! Bicentennial memorabilia will be on display and all are welcome to bring their own. Please bring a camping chair or a blanket.

In-person, live event. This is a socially-distanced event at THE FINLEY HOUSE.
