About us

The New Philadelphia Association, a not-for-profit organization formed by area residents, seeks to appropriately preserve a substantial portion of the town site in honor of a remarkable man and family of the antebellum Western Illinois frontier and continue to learn and spread the word about this unique place and its context. Every year we host the Likes Lectures and all year long we maintain the site, do history work, and talk with visitors and others.
