Society Hill is more than just a collection of beautiful houses, it comprises an historic district within the City of Philadelphia. The neighborhood, as shown on the map below, is usually defined as the area from Walnut to Lombard Streets and from the Delaware River to Eighth Street. The historic district has boundaries that are a bit more extensive than the Society Hill Civic Association’s territory. The historic district includes Pennsylvania Hospital, the Curtis Center, and several buildings and streets just south of Lombard Street. To see a map of the historic district, click here.
