MapList

One of Philadelphia’s most beautiful best-kept secrets, lovely, leafy Powelton Village is characterized by its unmistakable mix of stately houses and quirky, colorful businesses.

In fact, the area features so many incredibly preserved examples of movements in Victorian architecture that its designed historic district, plus a number of individual residences, are protected by the National Register of Historic Places.

The neighborhood possesses a spirit all its own, a personality bolstered by its friendly and widely diverse population. The area’s most enduring touchstones include its dedication to political activism and its healthy population of creatives, both new and old. Prolific artists’ groups and dance companies were drawn to the area thanks to the availability of former industrial spaces along Lancaster Avenue, one of the last thoroughfares in America to feature a fully operational streetcar system.
