2016 Philly Flower Show

Working the the flower show this year was definitely an interesting experience. Growing up, I was never particularly interested in flowers. But I've grown to appreciate them a little more with my chance to staff Temple's exhibit. The theme this year for Temple was Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site. I didn't know any of this prior to staffing the exhibit this year so here goes..

Hopewell Furnace is a national historic site in Berks County, PA. It is one of the first iron plantations in the U.S. during the Industrial Revolution during the mid to late 1700s and 1800s. This iron plantation is mostly known for laying the groundwork, along with other sites, for making
America the industrial giant that it is today.

  1. They have a few large flat screens in the hall but not too many to make this a sports bar. It's all about the beer at LA venue here. Long lines of taps are behind each bar sporting an impressive array of craft libations.
