ADULT EDUCATION Japan Uncovered: The 1876 Centennial Exposition @ Shofuso Japanese House and Garden | Philadelphia | Pennsylvania | United States
Discover the hidden historical connection between the 1876 Centennial Exposition’s Japanese Bazaar and Shofuso’s location in Fairmount Park. In this walking tour and lecture, we will visit Memorial Hall, Shofuso and the Sakura Pavilion to learn about the history of the centennial and the current archaeological excavation taking place at the footprint of the bazaar. The program will end with a talk by a member of the archaeological team AECOM and the opportunity to see artifacts that have been found to date. An informal wine and cheese reception will conclude the program.
