Thank You to Our Sponsors & Event Partners!

The Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance 6th annual In With The Old fundraiser aboard the USS Olympia was a rousing success and would not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors!



YFPA launched the #ISeeALegacy campaign in 2018 to raise awareness of the city’s incredible stock of legacy businesses as part of our ongoing effort to recognize, preserve, and celebrate the local landmarks that help define Philadelphia as a “city of neighborhoods.”  YFPA continues to research, document, and highlight businesses contributing to what will become Philadelphia’s first ever Legacy Businesses database. A Legacy Business is one that has operated for 30 or more years and has contributed to the history and/or the identity of a particular neighborhood or community.

Do you know a Legacy Business that we should feature? Let us know!
