The urban village of Historic Germantown was not only the first German settlement in the "New World," but also the site of the first written protest against slavery, the setting for the Battle of Germantown, the nation's first commuter suburb, and an area served by one of the nation's first railroads, and now by the longest streetcar line in the nation. Today, this district of Philadelphia has several historic mansions and houses open to the public, including Cliveden, the Deshler-Morris House, the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion, Upsala and more.
