About Us

Walnut Hill Community Association (WHCA) serves the neighborhood of Walnut Hill. The boundaries for the Walnut Hill neighborhood are Market Street on the North, 45th Street on the East, Spruce Street on the South and 52nd Street on the West.

WHCA was founded in 1961 by a group of neighbors, led by Charles Campbell Sr., who were concerned about the deterioration of their neighborhood.

WHCA continues to be a neighborhood group run by residents who are dedicated to their community revitalization. WHCA actively promotes the neighborhood and encourages residents to participate in community events and to help determine neighborhood improvement priorities. WHCA continues to strive and work for the betterment of the community and its residents. We welcome your input, energy and participation.
