Historic Germantown is a partnership of 18 extraordinary historic houses, destinations, and museums in Northwest Philadelphia that have joined together to protect, preserve, and share some of Philadelphia’s prized historical assets. Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Historic Germantown, located just minutes from Center City, is where one of Philadelphia’s Revolutionary War Battles was fought; where the first-ever American protest against slavery was written; and where one of the few remaining houses on the Underground Railroad still stands.
Historic Germantown will be a leader in enhancing the economic and cultural development of our community through the collective voice of its member sites.
Historic Germantown is a partnership organization serving historic sites in Philadelphia’s Old German Township that works collaboratively to preserve its extraordinary historic assets, increase access, interpret them to the public and raise their visibility.
Support provided by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund
Funding for our organization is supported in part by a grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission,
a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
