Hill Historic District
Conversations with residents have raised many very important questions about what a historic district designation means to property owners. They deserve responsible answers in settings and situations that promote respectful civil discourse. We are listening, and to the best of our abilities, will provide those answers in such an atmosphere. We will also work to counter misrepresentations, ranging from assertions that the neighborhood is architecturally undistinguished to the claim that historic district status will promote abandonment!
Over the next few months, we will provide you with information on Spruce Hill's historically significant assets, along with successes and failures at protecting our historic treasures. You will have many opportunities to ask your questions about what historic district designation means to you, and to express your opinions about the proposed designation. We will be in touch.
You Can Do:
questions to the University City Historical Society via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org,
or write us at P.O. Box 31927, Philadelphia, PA 19104.
We promise to work with you, now and in the future, to protect and maintain our historic treasures within the Spruce Hill Historic District and all of University City.
