Historical Society of Pennsylvania


The Historical Society of Pennsylvania presented PhilaPlace, a neighborhood history project and interactive website. Inviting community members to share their personal histories, PhilaPlace joined together first-person accounts with historical records, videos, maps, and images to present an interpretive picture of the rich history, culture, and architecture of Philadelphia past and present. The project was complemented by a series of community programs, including workshops for teachers, trolley tours, and installations.
