The Hidden History of the Schuylkill Center

October 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Today’s Schuylkill Center– an island of preserved open space in a large developing city– might have turned out differently. Did you know that the farmland that became the Schuylkill Center was short-listed as a site for the United Nations in the 1940s? Later, planners wanted Roxborough’s Cathedral Road to continue down our driveway and end at a bridge over the Schuylkill River to the Main Line. In a reprise of his popular lecture, executive director Mike Weilbacher presents the hidden history of the Center’s land, and the many mysteries behind things that never were.
