Take a stroll down America's oldest continuously occupied residential street and a National Historic Landmark. The breathtaking streetscape of 33 Georgian and Federal style homes was once occupied by artisans including blacksmiths, windsor chair makers, tailors, saddlers, printers, painters, and rope makers. Two homes are open to the public for guided tours highlighting the alley's 300-year history and 18th-century life. Exhibits and presentations change seasonally. Currently on the street, free of charge, is an exhibit detailing the immigrant residents which later came to occupy the street in the late 19th and early 20th centuries including those of Irish, Italian and Russian descent.
