Project Update: Historic Germantown
Cliveden in Historic Germantown

Eight Marketing is working with Historic Germantown on a marketing and branding plan as part of a comprehensive study underway to develop, partner, launch, package and promote Historic Germantown as a valuable historic, educational and enjoyable experience to the community, regional residents and visitors.

During the month of June, HGP has been holding a series of discussions with different community groups, including religious and youth organizations, business owners, and neighborhood associations, educators, and senior groups. These conversations focus on identifying major concerns or issues in Germantown and possible roles for HGP.

Out of the smaller community meetings will come the basis for a larger community gathering in early August to explore what makes Germantown a distinctive place, what is special about its people and how HGP and the community can work together to build and promote a more vibrant Germantown. In addition, consulting scholars are meeting with project staff to identify key historical themes and ideas that tie HGP sites together, creating a framework for more joint programming and marketing.

Historic Germantown Preserved, Inc. (HGP) is a group of thirteen historic sites, museums, historical organizations and an arboretum located in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. Partners in Historic Germantown Preserved include Awbury Arboretum, Cliveden of the National Trust, Concord Schoolhouse, Deshler-Morris House, Ebenezer Maxwell House, Germantown Historical Society, Grumblethorpe, Historic Rittenhouse Town, Johnson House, Stenton and Wyck.
