The Greater Philadelphia GeoHistory Network (GPGN) is a pilot project of the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries (PACSCL) to develop a web-based repository of geographically organized historical information about Philadelphia, its geography, its buildings, and its people.

Funding for the initial planning stage of the GPGN was generously provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and we are exploring avenues for funding the full project contemplated by the planning group. See the Pilot Grant Report and the Next Steps Discussion (PDF) for more information on what we hope the project could become.

Meanwhile, the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, with the help of its partners, has continued to expand the collection of digital resources, particularly historic property atlases, available on this site.
