Much of the history of Pennsylvania- and the US- can be found in the stories of the state's oldest buildings, and the people associated with them. Profiles to be added to this project can be the builders, owners, or inhabitants of the buildings. Or perhaps the people were connected through their professional lives or work.
When adding a profile to the project please include the building the person is associated with and their connection to it in the "About Me" section of the profile. Add links and sources, and interesting information if possible.
Check project photos for buildings in the project. For example, Rev. Jacob Duche was added to the project for his association with Christ Church and Carpenter's Hall, both in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
