As our nation’s oldest residential street, Elfreth’s Alley has a rich history of urban life and culture dating back to the turn of the 18th century. For over 300 years, Alley has been the home to a motley group of Philadelphia citizens. Recent archaeological investigations on the Alley have focused on the immigrant community that flourished on the street in the 19th century. Join Deirdre Kelleher, PhD Candidate at Temple University, for a discussion of urban archaeology and immigrant life on Elfreth’s Alley. View artifacts recovered from excavations and learn how you can become a part of the small street’s history!
