Socially engaged for 300 years

Historic Fair Hill offers programming in early literacy, community building, advocacy based history and urban greening in the Fairhill neighborhood of North Philadelphia.
Historic Fair Hill’s mission is to:



1) preserve our historic Quaker burial ground, and assure that its history and the ideals of the people interred there continue to speak to the world, and

2) act as a collaborative partner in the revitalization of the Fairhill community through school partnerships for literacy, greening, and community engagement events.

History

As a national historic site, we maintain and welcome visitors to the burial ground of great abolitionists and early women’s rights leaders

Community Events

As a gathering and educational center, we host field trips and family friendly events.

Early Literacy

As a community partner for literacy, we support our Fairhill elementary schools with school libraries, reading tutors, parent classroom assistants, and parent education.

Greening

As a center for community gardens and greening, we teach young people the skills of growing food and partner in seven gardens and street tree planting.
