Philadelphia Alley


Dating back to 1766, Philadelphia Alley in downtown Charleston was a secret to me. I have passed this way many times, never realizing this tucked away alley existed... just another moment when we discover something new in our very old city. 


Next time you're downtown, take a moment to stroll down this hidden alley...


The link below from Charleston Gateway has some great information on the history of this alley making it a great extension of a summer history lesson.

tucked between Cumberland and Queen Streets in downtown Charleston
pmk tip- the alley is easy to find right next to the Footlight Players Theatre at 20 Queen Street
