The City of Philadelphia is holding a public update on Friday night on the status and progress of the President's House memorial site, scheduled to open on Independence Mall in November.
New interpretative designs on how to tell the story of the President's House have been displayed at the Independence Visitors Center since late April. Now public comments will be gathered in the first public session to be held on the new proposed designs.
Roz McPherson is project director:
"We're showing them how we are planning to lay out the themes for the interpretation, the content that's being covered, the various methods that will be used to tell the story at the President's House, including video screens, exhibit panels, and some symbolic things, like bronze footprints to symbolize escaping to freedom."
The public meeting is scheduled for 5:30pm in conference room 114 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
