In Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood near the Delaware River, close to Interstate 95, is a historic cobblestoned street lined with thirty two houses built in the Georgian and Federal styles. These houses with their old-fashioned flower boxes, shutters, and Flemish bond brickwork, provide visitors a glimpse of how Philadelphia was in the early 18th century.

Elfreth's Alley is named after Jeremiah Elfreth, a blacksmith and land speculator, who built and rented out many of the alley's homes. Often the homes were rented to fellow artisans such as shipwrights, silver and pewter smiths, glassblowers, shoemakers, wagon builders and carpenters. These people were the backbone of colonial Philadelphia.
