The mission of the Elfreth’s Alley Association is to preserve and protect the Elfreth’s Alley historic district, while interpreting the contributions of everyday Philadelphians to our American story. The Elfreth’s Alley Museum interprets the lives of people who lived and/or worked on this historic street over three centuries. Located in two homes along Elfreth’s Alley, the museum introduces visitors to residents of house #126: two single women dressmakers making ends meet in the 1760s, German-American shoemakers raising a family and building wealth in the 1850s, and more. The museum is also a place to explore the stories of other houses on the street which are still residences today.
