About the RMWHS Website
Dear members, neighbors, and friends,
The Roxborough Manayunk Wissahickon Historical Society's website was launched in December 2020 and built to extend our group's presence beyond the meetings at Journey's Way and the Archive nestled in the Roxborough branch of the Philadelphia Free Library.
The goal of the site is to:
promote local history, art and culture
produce greater awareness of RMWHS and our activities
grow our membership and donor base
Though this current website is modest, it is my intention to see the RMWHS website expand its offerings and become an extension of the RMWHS Archive. It is my hope that members, neighbors, researchers, and other visitors will be able to discover and explore our area's history and the Archive's treasures from wherever they may be via laptop, phone, tablet, etc.
Be well and stay safe!
Digital Image Donations
The Archive is being digitized -- so if you do not want to part with your original historic images -- you don't have to!
If your image is an appropriate addition to our collection, an archivist can make a professional quality scan for our collection and you can keep your original.
No image is too damaged or faded to evaluate -- we can restore, rescue, or revive a great deal of an image digitally. (See "Capture, Preserve, & Restore - Oh My!")
