Welcome to the Society Hill Civic Association and its website. This is where you’ll find up-to-date news about our historic neighborhood and the many services we provide the community. The purpose of our website is to keep you informed, so we hope you’ll look around and come back often to check the calendar for events such as general memberships meetings, clean-up days, and the annual Society Hill House and Garden Tour, our Washington Square Affair or to see alerts about important issues affecting our community. 

The SHCA represents the more than 3,600 households in Society Hill as well as its many other important stakeholders: historic and religious institutions, schools and neighborhood businesses.  We are made up of a group of volunteers who care about our neighborhood and are working to protect and preserve its historic fabric of buildings and open space while keeping it a safe and attractive place to live and visit.  But we can’t do it alone.  We need your support. I’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to get involved, for example, by becoming a Tree Tender or by helping to beautify Washington Square, and if you’re not a member, I hope you’ll join. Your membership dues will help to support our programs and your involvement will help us preserve Society Hill’s unique character.

Thank you for visiting. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at president@societyhillcivic.org or our administrator Matt DeJulio at info@societyhillcivic.org.  We’d like to hear from you.
