Northern Liberties History

Northern Liberties is a neighborhood in Center City, Philadelphia.  Early in its history, Northern Liberties thrived in manufacturing having mills, breweries, leather tanneries, paints and chemical works, tool making factories, and iron and stove foundries in the neighborhood.  In 1985, the Northern Liberties Historic District was created, dedicated to preserving the Italianate architecture, Greek revival, and Federal style buildings which characterizes the area. In recent years, Northern Liberties has become a major enclave of young professionals, students, artists, and design professionals. Large improvement and revitalization projects have also been undertaken recently, causing a large jump in property values. The neighborhood’s proximity to Center City has made it one of the city’s most desirable development districts, both for commercial and residential real estate. Like most Philadelphia neighborhoods, the housing stock is primarily made up of rowhouses, although new development in recent times has brought apartment and condominium complexes. Northern Liberties’ boundaries for real estate purposes are Girard Avenue to the North, Callowhill Street to the South, 6th Street to the West; and the Delaware River to the East.  Northern Liberties is located just North of Old City.
