Society Hill Historic District
Locust St, between 5th & 6th Streets

Society Hill is a neighborhood in the Center City section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. The neighborhood, loosely defined as bounded by Walnut, Lombard, Front and 7th Streets, contains the largest concentration of original 18th- and early 19th-century architecture of any place in the United States. Society Hill is noted as a charming district with cobblestone streets bordered by brick rowhouses in Federal and Georgian style.

The district is named after the 18th century Free Society of Traders, which had its offices at Front Street on the hill above Dock Creek. Located close to both the Delaware River and Philadelphia’s civic buildings, including the Independence Hall, the neighborhood soon became one of the city’s most populous areas.

Several market halls, taverns and churches were built alongside brick houses of Philadelphia’s affluent citizens.

The hall itself, above the public market, is neverrented, but is forever to be used freely by the peoplewhenever they wish to meet together to discuss pub-lic affairs; and this alone would make the buildingproudly notable. And many a great man, and manya man who was deeply in earnest even if not great,has spoken in this hall. And it is still used freelyfor the public meetings of to-day. The meeting hall, almost square, has a right-angledarrangement of seats, and, with its rows of Doriccolumns, is quite distinguished.
