Society Hill Real Estate



Loosely designed from Lombard Street to Chestnut Street between the Delaware River to 7th Street, Society Hill is a charming neighborhood, where cobblestone streets are surrounded by beautiful historic -- as well as newly rehabbed -- brick townhomes. Society Hill is a prosperous area which has the largest concentration of original 18th and 19th century architecture of anywhere in the United States. This area is also surrounded by one of Philadelphia’s original five “squares,” Washington Square Park, designed by William Penn’s surveyor who wished to create a public park for citizens to gather. With limited commercial buildings and the existence of the park, this area is a great place for someone looking for peace and quiet in the city. Also located in Society Hill is a great shopping district, some beautiful old churches, and the Saint Peter’s School, which is considered to be one of the most exclusive private elementary schools in Philadelphia.
