Getting to know Philadelphia’s Society Hill

  1. 1. Adrian Rubin Getting to know Philadelphia’s Society Hill It was in 1681 when the Free Society of Traders bought out a space of land at Front and Pine Streets and its immediate surroundings from William Penn. This was where Society Hill got its name.

  2. 2. victorian-houses-aunt.jpg) In the mid-20th century, I.M. Pei-designed high-rise condos stood at the entrance of Society Hill, welcoming all those to the neighborhood’s cozy location. What one would first notice upon entering the neighborhood would be the abundance of brick homes, some two-story, some three-floors, which were made a century or two earlier. There are, however, other houses that are more modern, constructed in the la er half of the 20th century. Truth be told, Society Hill didn’t always have it easy. For nearly a hundred years, the neighborhood had been in decline with dilapidated buildings that were no longer maintained properly still housing people and establishments. Fortunately, the Redevelopment Authority took over and restored many of these residential areas. At its center is the Head House at Second and Pine streets, which was built in the early 1800s but restored. Behind it is a market that opens on summer weekends. Head House Square is framed by dozens of stores, restaurants, and cafes. For people interested in of acquiring property in the area, the price ranges from $270,000 to just above $2 million.
