1831 Chestnut St.
Since the early 19th Century, the area was considered a vital area of Philadelphia. In the heart of the district, Ben Franklin conducted his innovative experiment, flying his kite at 12th & Chestnut and changing the course of American History. The very first free Public Library was here, and at one time the US Mint sat center stage in Midtown Village. John Wanamaker, the pioneering “King of Merchants”, revolutionized retailing when he built his massive department store at 13th & Chestnut.
13th Street & Sansom St
The majority of the buildings in the district are residential although there are also a large number of commercial buildings, primarily on State and Union streets, as well as churches and schools. The general atmosphere is that of a small town, but clusters of row houses and stores standing shoulder-to shoulder along State Street create and air of busy prosperity. Over three quarters of the buildings in the district date from between 1875 and 1924.
