Gloria Dei Church National Historic Site
Imagine a tiny church at the edge of wilderness? Before Philadelphia, there was a village named Wicaco. Before William Penn, the Swedes were here, building log homes and a church they named GLORIA DEI. Imagine William Penn?s Philadelphia rising? Hand-hewed logs vanish in favor of locally baked brick. The Swedish log GLORIA DEI removed to be replaced by a new church, christened in brick.
