“The history of Philadelphia dates back more than 330 years. One area of the city, Elfreth's Alley, is nearly that old. Houses on this street date back to 1728. That makes it the oldest continuously inhabited residential street in the United States, as noted by uncoveringPA.com. Visitors can walk down the narrow alley and step on the same stones the founding fathers once walked on. You can also tour one of the homes. The Elfreth's Alley Association ensures that homes on Elfreth's Alley don't become casualties of neighborhood development programs.”
