Save The Historic Dox Thrash House
Since being added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places in 2013, the Dox Thrash House has had a difficult road. The property has remained vacant and in November 2019 a significant portion of the building was demolished, a likely over aggressive response to recent violations. That said, the primary facade remains standing and in reasonably good condition. A local housing developer is interested in acquiring the property and rehabilitating it for residential use.
Additionally, for the past four years, a group of volunteers known collectively as The Dox Thrash House Project has been planning and researching opportunities to operate an arts and social services hub within the Thrash house. In June, the group launched the Black Futures Campaign with a goal of raising $100k toward their vision. To learn more about the campaign and contribute directly visit their Ioby crowdfunding page.
