Please join the Preservation Alliance in applauding and celebrating the preservation efforts of the owners and nominators of the historic properties that were protected from demolition in 2019, by virtue of being listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a special evening at Oaks Cloister. Constructed in 1900, the mansion was the home and studio of Philadelphia born, Joseph Huston (1866-1940), architect of the PA Capitol. The Tudor style home incorporates architectural elements and work by many capital artists. Oaks Cloister was fully restored to its original glory in 2012, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2019.
