Preservation Plan and Historic Resources Survey

Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia

2008
$100,000

The Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia engaged in a planning process for a major preservation plan and historic resources survey for the city of Philadelphia. Prior to this project, the Preservation Alliance estimated that only 4% of properties in Philadelphia had been evaluated in terms of their historical, architectural, and/or cultural significance. Center support enabled a team of historians to develop historical context statements for the sites' histories and physical developments.
