Hegeman String Band’s clubhouse on Two Street sold for residential redevelopment

Here’s a big thank you to the friendly neighborhood tipster who pointed this out. You can help too. So, if you see something, say something – in an email to punk@passyunkpost.com.


The clubhouse of the Hegeman String Band at 1247 S. 2nd St., in the heart of the Mummers row on Two Street, has been sold to a developer for residential conversion. But the club’s not moving just yet, and they hope to stay close by.
