Victorian House

old house

The Victorian house on the northwest corner of 20th and Delaney attracts attention. It is a series of cupolas, bays, towers, balconies and even has a small secluded garden within the outer garden. At night small lights a glow in one of the trees, and from time to time bits of Victoriana are displayed in the small bay on 18th Street.

Delancey does a bit of a dog leg at 20th St., continuing west somewhat south of its run east of 20th. Just a short distance west is the Rosenbach Museum and Library

Rittenhouse Square
