New Philadelphia

The New Philadelphia Association (NPA) had tried to increase awareness of the place and raise a significant amount of money to save New Philadelphia from future development, but had accumulated only a small amount of cash by 2003. It believed that personal contacts would help it raise money, but it often reached dead ends. New Philadelphia is about race and ethnic history, and it runs counter to consensus history. The National Science Foundation (NSF) financed the project for three years for a total of $226,500. A proposal to the NSF based on the support of the local and descendant communities had been developed. The participants in the archaeology research project were all very anxious in May 2004. It was thought that it was important to help the community to work toward making all of New Philadelphia and its many histories part of the national public memory.
