Since 1965, the Society Hill Civic Association (SHCA) has represented Society Hill’s more than 5,000 residents in over 3,600 households, in an area from the Delaware River to 8th Street and Walnut to Lombard Streets. SHCA is a volunteer organization that works to keep our neighborhood a safe and attractive place for residents and visitors alike. In addition, SHCA’s mission is to protect the historic character of a neighborhood that is the birthplace of our nation and continues to be part of our living history. From the beginning, there have been issues that threatened Society Hill and SHCA has been there to advocate for the neighborhood. In 1999, under the leadership of SHCA, Society Hill was designated a historic district by the Philadelphia Historical Commission. Governed by a board of directors elected by the membership at its annual meeting, SHCA supports its many programs through membership dues, fundraising, and donations.
