Brief History of the Associated Polish Home of Philadelphia

Since its establishment in 1900, the Associated Polish Home (originally founded as the Polish Library Association of Philadelphia) has served as the heart of Polish culture, arts and society in the Philadelphia area. Since 1900, Polish Home has hosted cultural organizations, veterans groups, educational programs, social activities, and events which not only support Philadelphia’s Polish-American community, but also enrich the the community of neighboring Northeast Philadelphia.

Polish Home is a family-oriented event venue, and our elegant Belvedere Banquet Hall, our casual and hip Vistula Lounge, and our gorgeous park and picnic grounds are available for private party rentals year-round.

As part of its mission, Polish Home aims to promote social responsibility by sponsoring and promoting a variety of charitable events. From organizing an annual Christmas Charity Drive for orphans in Poland and the United States, to hosting benefit fundraisers arranged by private individuals and organizations, Polish Home is there to help.

The Associated Polish Home is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is housed at 9150 Academy Road in Northeast Philadelphia.
