Elfreth's Alley Museum

Elfreth’s Alley is a National Historic Landmark in Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood. 

A residential neighborhood with houses built between the 1720s and the 1830s, Elfreth’s Alley has been home to artisans, factory workers, laborers, and professionals over three centuries. The 18th- and early-19th-century architecture with old-fashioned flower boxes, shutters, and Flemish bond brickwork evokes Philadelphia’s time as a bustling port during the Colonial period and during the first decades of the republic. 

Visitors can tour the house at #126 on the Alley, which is now a museum, to learn about dressmakers, shoemakers, and other artisans who lived in the house, as well as about the larger history of the Alley.
