The Franklin Institute celebrated a milestone Tuesday in the construction of the new state-of-the art Nicholas and Athena Karabots Pavilion.
Workers have pulled a huge sheet of plastic over the 20-foot-tall, white marble statue of Ben Franklin, in preparation of removal of a portion of the south wall of the Franklin Institute’s central great hall.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday morning for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s new pediatric care facility at 48th and Market Streets.
Two years ago, Whitemarsh residents Nicholas and Athena Karabots offered more than $4 million to enlarge and update the Jeanes Memorial Library on Joshua Road.
