Established in 1958, the Chestnut Hill Local emerged as a community forum and since has become an award-winning, independent weekly newspaper serving the neighborhood of Chestnut Hill, PA and the surrounding communities of Northwest Philadelphia.
For 50 years the Local has chronicled this section of Philadelphia. We cover politics, business and the quality of life. Our local aspect offers in-depth coverage of area events. We publish stories about local personalities, life, restaurants, schools, art and cultural happenings in our region. If it's happening in the Northwest, we have it.
Below you will find a roster of individuals who make the Local what it is.
