Elfreth's Alley

Walking through the oldest block in America
More than 3,000 people since 1702 have made this charming street the oldest continuously inhabited residential street in the United States. With our local guide Chris, I had the opportunity to walk through and see the 32 homes that line the street today during Philadelphia's Annual "12-Hour, River to River, Pine to Vine" walking tour. A witness to nearly 311 years of American history that remains intact - amazing!
