3 homes hit market on historic Philadelphia block

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The quaint Philadelphia street known as Elfreth's Alley is one of the nation's first residential neighborhoods, and homes on the cobblestone block rarely turn over.

But history buffs looking for a place on the National Register of Historic Places now have their chance.

The Philly.com website (http://bit.ly/1jeLOQt ) reports that three Elfreth's Alley homes are on the market. They range in price from about $650,000 to $850,000.

Amy Bluemle and David Cohen have lived in a handsome brick row home on the street since 2001. It's known as "the baker's home" because of its 18th century origins.

They say they love the house, but are selling to find more room for their growing sons.

Elfreth's Alley dates to 1702, and attracts thousands of tourists a year.
