Overview

Named for blacksmith and property-owner Jeremiah Elfreth, Elfreth’s Alley was home to the 18th-century artisans and trades-people who were the backbone of colonial Philadelphia.

Over 300 years later, the historic 32 houses that line the street remain hot properties, and this itty-bitty cobblestone street enjoys designation as a National Historic Landmark.
