The Presbyterian Historical Society is transforming the ways we serve. We're a national church archives for the 21st century, an engaged Philadelphia neighbor, and a friend to histories of faith around the world.

As we share information about new initiatives that connect with our mission to collect, preserve, and share Presbyterian history, we're asking how PHS can continue our tradition of excellent service in new ways.

Please fill out our patron survey and let us know how PHS can help tell your story and others through our collections.

You can also tell us your thoughts on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram: #PresbyHistory
