About Us

Many people, groups, organizations, universities from across the country are involved in the New Philadelphia project. Since its beginnings, this project has been a collaborative effort between all those involved and has attempted to immediately share all discovered information.

This collaborative situation is the ideal for this type of project, as it allows all types of information to be shared and disseminated between a large number of people.
