yellowing paper

RittenhouseTown is the site of
the first paper mill in British
North America, founded in
1690 by William Rittenhouse,
America’s first Mennonite
minister and founder of the
Rittenhouse family. It is also
historically significant as the
birthplace of David Rittenhouse,
an important 18th century
statesman and scientist and the
site of an early American
industrial village.



More from our visit to Erica in Philadelphia. For ABC Wednesday this yellow door fits the criterion for today's letter du jour: Y. It is the entrance the Rittenhouse stone house circa 1787 at the small Rittenhouse Town in Fairmont Park, Germantown.
See more Y's, both old and new,@ Mrs Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday.

I can only think of Margaret Dumont playing Mrs. Rittenhouse in the Marx Bros. movie Animal Crackers, I think.
