The Philadelphia City Archives is relocating to 456 N. 5th Street! As of December 15, 2017, our site will temporarily close to the public to facilitate our relocation. We will continue to fulfill requests for copies of deeds, except for requests that are for historical research and/or academic research purposes. This temporary service disruption will extend through August 2018 to allow our staff adequate time to prepare for and execute the relocation. We expect to reopen at our new home on September 1, 2018.
Please mail deed requests and payment to: City Hall, Room 156, Department of Records, Philadelphia, PA 19107
If you would like to contact our main office please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (215) 686-2261. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We look forward to serving you at our new location.
