Philadelphia Kolping Society

Established on April 5, 1925, the Philadelphia Kolping Society is one of the founding member organizations of the German-American Committee, now called the German-American Heritage Foundation with offices and a museum in Washington, D.C.

For many years the Philadelphia Kolping Society resided at 5330 Rising Sun Avenue in Philadelphia. In 1996, we moved to 1285 Southamton Road. Our headquarters are currently located at the Cannstatter Volksfest Verein at 9130 Academy Road in Philadelphia.
