HSP holds a variety of events throughout the year, including genealogy workshops, lectures and panel discussions, tours, and teacher workshops. Events are held at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania at 1300 Locust Street in Philadelphia unless noted otherwise.

Upcoming Events

In light of the current situation with COVID-19, there are a few announcements in regards to the course:

  • The course will be held virtually (over Zoom) during its regularly scheduled time. 
  • Recordings of the sessions will be made available to attendees to view for the duration of one week after the session.
  • We're disappointed that we can't offer the course in person this year, but we made this decision over abundance of caution for our patrons and staff. Also included with the course will be three complimentary passes to research in our library to be used at your convenience.
