      • Elfreth’s Alley: This cobblestone alley surrounded by homes from the 18th century was opened as a cart path in 1706 and is considered the oldest residential street in the U.S.
      • Franklin Court:  A tranquil open-air courtyard is the centerpiece of a memorial complex with a museum and historic printing office on the site of Franklin’s residence.
      • More than a guide: Your tour leaders are known as docents, Latin for “teacher." These ph.D. and Master’s-level experts in Philadelphia’s history accompany your group of six or fewer, ensuring plenty of time for questions.

      Meeting point

      Please meet your guide at the house, number 124 in Elfreth's Alley. The Alley is located off of 2nd Street between Arch and Cherry streets.
