The West Philadelphia Community History Center provides a place for our neighbors to experience the history of West Philadelphia. We present history as an ongoing collection of connected ideas and narratives. The voices of the community are an important part of this history and we aim to provide resources for community members to share their West Philadelphia stories.
Note: This newly redesigned website was originally created in 2008 by students and faculty at the University of Pennsylvania in collaboration with its University Archives and Records Center. Content from the original West Philadelphia Community History Center website is gradually being transitioned over. If you require access to content that has not yet been added to the new website, please contact us.
