Virtual Research Consultation Upon Request 
The BEST research support we can offer is via Zoom as we can share digital resources (including tip sheets, shortcuts, digital/indexed books, & images) that are not accessible in the Archive. 

In-Person Visits to Archive: September - May
(and for special circumstances)

  • ​​Location & Parking - The RMWHS Archive is inside the Roxborough branch of the Philadelphia Free Library located at 6245 Ridge Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19128. Free street parking is available -- Hermitage Street recommended. Admission is free.

  • Masks - Our volunteer may ask you to wear a mask in the Archive. It is a small, tight room and there is little personal space. Please understand our volunteers give time, energy, and skills to help the public and a request to mask up is a small kindness you can pay them if they ask. Thank you!

  • Visitor Limit - Please note that due to limited space, the Archive can only comfortably accommodate 2 visitors at any one time.

  • No Wheelchair Access - While the main Library entrance is wheelchair accessible, much of the Library including the narrow Archive entrance is not. Please consider a virtual visit instead -- it can be far more beneficial for research and sharing historic items in great detail as many visual images have been scanned. 

No food, drink, or pets permitted.

Open by appointment. Admission free.
