Established in 2013, the Henry George Birthplace, Archive and Historical Research Center is a research and educational division of the Henry George School of Social Science. The School was founded in 1932 by Oscar H. Geiger. The physical location of the Birthplace at 413 South 10th Street in Philadelphia is the birthplace of the social and economic philosopher Henry George (1839-1897).

Our mission is three-fold: (1) to promote historical research, publication, and discussion of Henry George and his ideas; (2) to serve as the central repository of archival material on Henry George, the Henry George School of Social Science and the Georgist movement; and, (3) to preserve the Henry George Birthplace as the only surviving residence of Henry George.
