The Philadelphia History Museum has loaned over 20 artifacts to The Heritage Center of the Union League of Philadelphia’s new exhibition, Risk and Reward: Entrepreneurship and the Making of Philadelphia. The latest exhibit honors the second clause in the first line of the Union League by-laws, “Every member shall support the Constitution, and the free enterprise system.” The exhibit celebrates entrepreneurship, with a focus on nine entrepreneurs, from William Penn to John Wanamaker & Atwater Kent. See the inventions, artifacts, and important documents from business and industry that bring to life the birth and rise of Philadelphia.
