Nestled in the heart of Philadelphia's Old City district, Elfreth's Alley, with its charming cobblestone street, has stood the test of time. The neighborhood features thirty-two houses, half of which were built before the beginning of the American Revolution, while the other half were constructed during the postcolonial and Federal periods. At over 300 years old, Elfreth's Alley holds the distinction of being one of the oldest continuously inhabited residential street in the nation.
Today, Elfreth's Alley is considered one of Philadelphia's top historical sites, second only in popularity to Independence National Historical Park among tourists and history buffs, and it attracts thousands of visitors annually. With its picturesque row houses and rich history, it's no wonder why Elfreth's Alley remains a beloved landmark in the city.
