Philadelphia historic districts

Historic districts

A historic district is a collection of historic resources linked by a location or theme. In Philadelphia, these districts are nominated to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places. During this process, information is collected about the district. It often includes:

  • A narrative that describes the district’s historic significance.
  • An inventory of the resources within its boundaries.
  • A boundary map.

For some districts, manuals for property owners and other documents are also available.
