Storage of Westtown School Architectural Drawings and Plans

Funding supports the purchase of preservation supplies and storage furniture to preserve a collection of 400 architectural drawings, plans, and blueprints documenting the construction of Westtown School and the architecture of the Philadelphia area.

Westtown School seeks funds to purchase storage furniture and preservation supplies for drawings, plans and blueprints that comprise the collection of architectural records in the school archives. This important collection (which includes the work of Philadelphia area architects from both the 19th and 20th centuries) documents the physical structures that serve Westtown School, a pre-kindergarten through 12th grade day and boarding coeducational school founded in 1799 by the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. The project will include the arrangement and description of this collection and provide long-term, appropriate storage for the oversize drawings and plans.
