Society Hill Philadelphia

Neighborhood Guide

Society Hill stretches from Walnut to Lombard between Front and 8th Streets in the Center City section of Philadelphia. As one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, the history comes to life in the Federal and Georgian style brick townhomes on quaint cobblestone streets.

Even with Independence Hall as a nearby attraction, Society Hill has remained a residential neighborhood since its origination in 1683. Today, the streets of Society Hill are just as serene as ever.
