The Church of the Assumption Lives for Another Day

Yesterday, the Board of Licenses and Inspections Review voted in support of the Callowhill Neighborhood Association's appeal to save the nineteenth century gothic-revival Church of the Assumption. The five members of the L&I Review board voted unanimously to uphold the appeal, which consequently overturned the Philadelphia Historical Commision's grant to allow Siloam Wellness to raze the building.

More good news...

According to a board member of the Callowhill Neighborhood Association, the Clay Studio, the non-profit ceramic arts organization located at North 2nd St., is seeking to expand its headquarters into the historic structure.
