Chestnut Hill: Because sometimes you just feel fancy
in Visit Philadelphia

“Loaded with photo-worthy charm, Chestnut Hill is tucked in the northwest section of Philadelphia, just 25 minutes from Center City. And thanks to its location near Wissahickon and Cresheim creeks and Fairmount Park, this National Register Historic District enjoys an abundance of greenery and open spaces. Once a suburb where well-to-do Philadelphians escaped the city’s summer heat, Chestnut Hill saw an influx of year-round residents with the arrival of railroads in the 19th century.  Since then, it remains a relatively affluent community with an array of historic mansions and Victorian twin and row houses.”
