Society Hill is an affluent neighborhood in the Center City section of Philadelphia. 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. Much like Beacon Hill in Boston, Society Hill is noted as a charming district with cobblestone streets bordered by brick rowhouses in Federal and Georgian style.

Society Hill is truly an example of urban living just minutes away (walking distance) from the excitement of the city, yet quiet and tranquil with wonderful parks and gardens. Society Hill …. an oasis in the heart of the city.
