It's not youse, it's me
Amid the hoopla of March Madness several months ago, a friend and I carved out some time to visit Elfreth’s Alley. Ye oldest residential street in the country dates back to the early 1700s and sits by the Delaware River.
Elfreth’s Alley was named for blacksmith and property-owner Jeremiah Elfreth. From colonial to contemporary times, people still inhabit the houses on the cobblestone block today.
We visited the Elfreth’s Alley Museum and took a history-filled tour. One scary fact? Kitchen accidents proved deadly for many women whose floor-length dresses would catch fire. (I had a similar kitchen scare/Michael Scott moment when I spilled hot bacon grease on my foot the other day. Women: stay OUT of the kitchen!)
