    From 'Main Street Modernism' to common fabric: 19 sites considered for historic designation
    A cluster of social and civic buildings were individually nominated for historic designation, including a closed Catholic church, the hall of a German singing society, a mansion turned Y, and a former firehouse. Despite the city's rich German-American history, very few sites commemorating this past are listed in the Philadelphia Register.

    Play Arts Coming to Former Bath House Under the El
