This is a beta version of a website documenting the history of the post-World War II urban renewal of the Society Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia. Through the aggregation, digitization, and spatialization of a variety of historical materials, the site aims to reconstruct the reconstruction of a community. Key sources include historical land use maps, photographs, architectural data, and oral histories; but these materials are just a start. We look forward to incorporating additional documents and perspectives as we develop the site over time.
