Old-ass Building of the Week-- February 6th

Adelphi School aka The Wager Street School

1223 Spring Street

                          This little building, tucked away in a forgotten corner of Center City that I call Season City, is one of the last surviving Black Schoolhouses in America. It has survived development after re-development, street name change after street name change, of all its surroundings. It is a true ruin from Philadelphia's ancient past and America's cultural heritage.
