About

The Local

Established in 1958, the Chestnut Hill Local emerged as a community forum and since has become an award-winning, independent weekly newspaper serving the neighborhoods of Chestnut Hill, Mt. Airy, Wyndmoor, Flourtown, Erdenheim  and the surrounding communities in Northwest Philadelphia and Eastern Montgomery County. Each week, the Local is read by nearly 10,000 adults in its print form and thousands others online.  About 60,000 people visit chestnuthilllocal.com each month.  The Local is currently distributed by mail and is available at newsstands and honor boxes throughout the region.  

For more than 60 years the Local has chronicled this section of Philadelphia, covering politics, business and the quality of life. Our local aspect offers in-depth coverage of area events, local personalities, life, restaurants, schools, art and cultural happenings in our region.

The Local has won prestigious awards from the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association in photography, reporting, writing, design, investigative reporting and advertising.

The Chestnut Hill Local is owned by the Chestnut Hill Community Association.
