Elfreth's Alley: Examples of Row House Architecture
One of the most famous examples of row house architecture is Elfreth's
Alley in Philadelphia. Now a National Historic Landmark, the alley
dates back to the 1700s and is touted as one of the oldest continuously
inhabited residential streets. Row houses, in general, tend to be very
narrow two-story houses with traditional layouts. One unique aspect of
the houses on Elfreth's Alley is that while they are attached, they do
not all look the same.
