Philadelphia History Museum

15 South 7th Street

Philadelphia, PA 19106

Topic: Urban Planning in Philadelphia’s History

For over 40 years, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) has been the principal agency charged with planning for the future of southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey. This event will focus on the centuries leading up to that point and the evolution of the city of Philadelphia from “greene country towne” to a thriving metropolis. A historian will explore the centrality of planning at key points in Philadelphia’s history, and facilitate a discussion of the museum’s fascinating galleries.


Refreshments will be provided!
