Add Germantown as a Neighborhood

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Please change the Visitphilly.com website to accurately reflect Germantown as the neighborhood that is the home to Grumblethorpe, Wyck, the Johnson House, Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion, and Awbury Arboretum not Mt. Airy as is currently listed on the website.

Why is this important?

If you go to this site.....

http://www.visitphilly.com/philadelphia-neighborhoods/

You will see that Germantown is NOT an option as a neighborhood in Philadelphia.

Yet, when you click on Mt. Airy here....

http://www.visitphilly.com/philadelphia-neighborhoods/mt-airy/view-all/

You'll see that most of the attractions they cite are actually in Germantown....Grumblethorpe, Awbury Arboretum, the Johnson House, Maxwell Mansion, Wyck, Cliveden.....

That's a travesty!!!

Please take a moment and let the visitphilly people (which used to be called the Greater Philadelphia Tourism and Cultural something and is THE official tourism site for Philadelphia) know that Germantown needs to be recognized as the steward of all these sites....

Reasons for signing

  • I lived there for 12 years and it is very much a neighborhood.
  • I is very definitely a separate neighborhood!
  • Germantown Historical Society, Deshler-Morris House (Washington's Summer White House, Juneteenth Festival, Stenton, Revolutionary Germantown and MORE are in GERMANTOWN. Quit ignoring our neighborhood.
