COMING SOON: Rail Park Time Capsule

Is there a place in your neighborhood that you love?

What about something that used to be there but isn’t anymore? 

Capture your best neighborhood memories and moments and add them to the Rail Park Time Capsule: a digital archive that highlights and preserves what Philadelphians love about the past and present of their neighborhoods, and what their hopes are for the future.

The Time Capsule will generate a collective vision for the Rail Park – one that uplifts the existing identities and assets of the communities the park connects. From Brewerytown to Northern Liberties, we want to know what makes your neighborhood unique

Submissions to the Time Capsule will display on a digital map, visualizing the stories, objects, spaces and places that sustain culture and hold historic value for the people that live, work, and play in the 10+ neighborhoods that the Rail Park traverses through.  In addition to preserving the history of your neighborhood, your submissions will also help us ensure Rail Park programming best serves your community, and will inform plans for the future phases of the Park.

Become one of the first contributors to the Time Capsule: make your submission here!


The Rail Park Time Capsule is made possible through a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
