Voting Home / Elfreth's Alley
Nominated for: BEST Museum
Elfreth's Alley is a living, breathing historic neighborhood in the heart of Historic Philadelphia. The Alley was opened in 1702 and has been home to thousands of ordinary Philadelphians for more than 300 years. The Alley is a place where you can learn about what life was like for the working people that built and maintained this city during the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Unlike many historic sites, these 32 houses are still privately owned and occupied, making this one of the oldest continuously inhabited residential streets in America.
