Photographer's Note

The thirty-two buildings along Elfreth's Alley were built between the 1720s and 1830s, and today they reveal the fascinating stories of everyday life, the spaces that America's founders knew.

Only houses 124 and 126 are open to the public. Elfreth's Alley hopes to add House 128 to the museum complex as an exhibition space dedicated to the city's 19th Century industrial culture with a media/education center to further enhance our programming. The other houses remain private homes where Philadelphia families have lived in the same spaces for 300 years. Alley residents open some of these homes every year, as part of the Fete Day and Deck the Alley celebrations.
