We’re pleased to partner with the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia to participate in this year’s Jane’s Walk series of tours in the region. Stroll through more than two centuries of history on this short walk centered on Camden’s Cooper Street Historic District. Distinctive domestic architecture, public art, the campus of Rutgers-Camden, and waterfront redevelopment projects reveal how choices of individuals and organizations shape and reshape a city. The walk will be led by Charlene Mires, Editor-In-Chief of The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia. Additional information: Link here.
The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia is a civic project to increase understanding of one of America’s greatest cities. Produced by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers-Camden, the Encyclopedia as a digital resource and in print volumes will offer the most comprehensive, authoritative reference source ever created for the Philadelphia region.Like Us On Facebook» Read Our Blog»
