Explore Reading's history through architecture without having to leave your seat! The Architects of Muhlenberg Greene are partnering with Brad Smith from the Berks History Center to present a historical panorama in honor of Fred Muhlenberg's Birthday.
The presentation will highlight Fred Muhlenberg's contributions to the Reading skyline and look forward to current projects underway as part of Reading's adaptive reuse wave while touching on the historic places still standing as-is. The presentation also will feature pieces from the Muhlenberg Legacy Rendering Art Show.
At the end, we'll play a game of Guess This Famous Building for prizes!
