    Historic RittenhouseTown

    Where
    206 Lincoln Drive Philadelphia PA 19144
    Among the many picturesque acres of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, there is a rare and unique treasure known as Historic RittenhouseTown. It is the site of America's first paper mill, established in 1690 by Wilhelm Rittenhausen. Today, 7 buildings remain, dating from the early 18th century until the end of the 19th century, including a barn which houses our papermaking studio, the original Rittenhouse Family Homestead, and the original Rittenhouse Homestead Bakehouse. The site is open to the public and offers many exciting programs that enrich interest and awareness of this important National Historic Landmark and all it has to offer. The main entrance is on Wissahickon Avenue between Lincoln Drive and Walnut Lane.
