Elfreth’s Alley

And you thought your house was old. Take the children to the nation’s oldest continuously inhabited street, dating back to 1755. Although most of the houses are private residences, there’s a museum that recreates the life of trades people and artisans in the 18th century. During June Fete Days, the homes and gardens are open for tours, and the children can dress up in colonial costumes, try chair-making or lace-making, and listen to a genuine fife and drum corps.
