Historic Fourth Ward Neighborhood
Fourth Ward is known for its historic district of charming Victorians and quiet streets, a strong sense of community and a variety of housing choices. The neighborhood association has existed since 1976, but the neighborhood dates to the 1800s when it was home to prosperous merchants, ministers and physicians. It endured a period of decline until the 1970s, when the Junior League partnered with Bank of America to begin revitalizing the neighborhood home by home. Today, residents value the combination of neighborhood feel and proximity to all of Center City’s dining, culture and employment offerings. Every December for more than 35 years, the neighborhood has organized its annual Holiday Home Tour, showcasing both its historic houses and modern high-rise condominiums. With SkyHouse I now open and SkyHouse II under construction, Fourth Ward is excited to welcome new neighbors and retail.
