A recent essay in the online Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia provides a useful history of Society Hill from 1682 to the present, complete with photographs, a map, related readings, and suggestions for places to visit.
Recently, SHCA published the 20th anniversary edition of the Guide to Historic Society Hill. This beautifully produced, 68-page spiral-bound booklet takes residents and visitors on a walking tour of Society Hill, highlighting many historic properties that often are overlooked in the typical visitors’ guide to the city. The handbook includes a color photo of every building, and descriptions of new buildings have been added.
A reminder that the trash pick-up this week is delayed 1 day due to the MLK holiday.×
