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.

 

Feel free to "Contact Us" through the website with questions or comments -- or email me directly at rmwhsarchives@gmail.com.

​​​​​​Be well and stay safe!

Writers, Historians, and Photographers  Welcome

​If you would like to contribute to the website ...

please contact us via the website or send us an email.

Show us your treasures!

RMWHS is always on the lookout for vintage images of the area and you may have something we've not seen. If you think you might, we'd love to take a peek.

Please contact us via the website or send us an email.
 

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!")

For more information,

please contact us via the website or send us an email.
