Updated May 8, 2014: The city block at 35th and Spring Garden Streets, home to the Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships, has a rich history. Created as a country estate in the 18th century, the site was converted into a subdivision in the early 19th century and transformed again into a residence and school for mute and deaf children in the early 20th century. Over eighty years later, the site will embody the same spirit of service as a hub for civic engagement between Drexel and its surrounding community. The Dornsife Center will open its doors this June.

Below are fifteen photos of the renovated space provided by P. Agnes, the construction manager for this project.
