Historic Fair Hill is a community space and historic burial ground located in the heart of North Philadelphia. It is the final resting place of brave, pioneering men and women who fought for freedom, civil rights, and equality for all human beings. Today we cultivate this space for a new generation of inquisitive minds, active hands, and generous hearts.
