During a recent trip to Philadelphia, PA,
I was lucky enough to be with a local,
who happens to be one of my very best friends.
She thought Elfreth's Alley would be
right up my...well, alley!
She was right.
(She always is!)
"Elfreth's Alley — popularly known as "Our nation’s oldest residential street" –
dates back to the first days of the eighteenth century."
"Since 1702, Elfreth's Alley has been home to more than 3,000 people.
Today thirty-two houses, built between 1728 and 1836, line the alley."
"They form one of the last intact early American streetscapes in the nation.
Elfreth's Alley is a National Historic Landmark District,
one of the first districts that celebrates the lives of everyday Americans."
