    Travel 100 years into history and back with these then-and-now Philly photos
    You don't need 10 photos to tell you how much Philadelphia has changed in 100 years, but it sure makes it easier to picture. Some of the biggest changes to our nation's history will take place in 2017 - from Donald Trump taking over the presidency and medical marijuana becoming available in Pennsylvania to Philadelphia adopting the first soda tax in any major U.S.

    Bella Vista church re-lists in latest twist of preservation battle
    A preservation battle over a Bella Vista church with many twists and turns has ended in a surprising fashion: After a faulty historic designation, the Christian Street Baptist Church will most likely meet the wrecking ball instead if another buyer doesn't come forward.

    After 45 Years, Brandywine Workshop Still Thinking Creatively
    When Allan Edmunds bought the four-story building at 730 South Broad Street back in 1991, people thought he was crazy. The Italianate gray granite ashlar structure, built in 1849 and attributed to architect Samuel Sloan, had sat vacant and neglected for nearly 40 years.

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.
