Spring Arts District
History is something that’s been written in a book. With the Spring Arts district, it’s our intention to write another. The history of Philadelphia’s Callowhill neighborhood is the history of industrial revolution in America. Mostly farmlands until the mid-19th century, it quickly became the booming manufacturing center of Philadelphia.
If the city needed it, we made it here. This is our Detroit, a place where we made things, once abandoned only to be rediscovered by a new generation eager to dream, build, create, and share.
Just like the long-forgotten taverns and public houses that existed in this very neighborhood, Spring Arts isn’t just a place where products are made, it’s a place where ideas are born. The Declaration of Independence was written among friends, over drinks, in our city. What shall we declare next?
A neighborhood is more than the sum of its parts, and the Spring Arts community’s goal is to foster the synergy that exists between creative kindred spirits.
