Center for Northeast Philadelphia History

Diane Prokop of the Northeast Times reports this week on the recent meeting of the Center for Northeast Philadelphia History at Trinity Church Oxford.

The CNEPH is an outgrowth of the Historical Society of Frankford, whose mission since 1905 has been to preserve and present the history of Northeast Philadelphia.
CNEPH’s initial goals were to sponsor a Web site through which individuals and organizations can post materials, publicize events and communicate; provide a central repository where archival materials and information on Northeast Philadelphia history are preserved and made available to the public; sponsor periodic meetings enabling participants to network and learn about one another’s activities; and sponsoring cooperative public programs that help to preserve and promote the area’s history.
