Tour Information

  • The tour takes place in Tinicum Township, on the ancestral land of the Lenni-Lenape people.

  • The tour starts just outside the entrance to the township offices, on the side of the main building that faces the river (location shown in photo above).

  • To begin, start your track at the same time as your partner.

  • This tour takes place outdoors, so please dress for the weather.

  • Unfortunately, the site is not wheelchair accessible. Make sure you feel comfortable walking on gravel and grass, and you’re wearing comfortable shoes. Be careful and pay attention to your surroundings. 

  • This audio tour is interactive. You will be interacting with the place, and interacting with your partner. This should be someone you are comfortable looking in the eye, holding their hand, and touching their arm - and someone you are comfortable with doing those things with you.
