I can't find the original agreement anywhere, but here's how the court summarized its understanding of the facts in a 2008 memorandum:
In 1928, the City of Philadelphia granted to the Philadelphia Council of the Boy Scouts of America1 permission to build its headquarters on a parcel of land owned by the city. Located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the property was to be the home of the Boy Scouts’ regional headquarters. The terms of the arrangement were set out in a City Ordinance, which granted to Cradle “the privilege of erecting at its own expense on the lot . . . a suitable building to become at once the property of the City and to be used exclusively by the Boy Scouts for their own activities.” (Br. Supp. City of Phila. Mot. Dismiss, Ex. 1.) The Ordinance provided that “such building and lot . . . be kept in good order by said Boy Scouts during their occupancy.” (Id.) The Ordinance further allowed the City to terminate this arrangement, providing that the premises were “to be surrendered within one year after notice given them by the Commissioners of Fairmount Park, with the approval of the Mayor and City Council, of their desire to terminate the arrangement or by said Boy Scouts of their desire to surrender said property.” (Id.) source
