Art Museum / Fairmount

Philadelphia Art Museum

Fairmount is a neighborhood in the North Philadelphia area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The name “Fairmount” itself derives from the prominent hill on which the Philadelphia Museum of Art now sits, and where William Penn originally intended to build his own manor house. Later, the name was applied to the street originally called Hickory Lane that runs from the foot of Fairmount hill through the heart of the neighborhood. The area is sometimes referred to as the “Art Museum Area,” for its proximity to and association with the Art Museum & Logan Square.

Definitions of the boundaries of Fairmount vary. The broadest definition places it roughly between Vine Street to the south, Girard Avenue to the north, the Schuylkill River to the west, and Broad Street to the east. This definition places the neighborhood in both the North and Center City sections of Philadelphia, encompassing the neighborhoods of Spring Garden, Franklintown, and Francisville. A more intimate definition of the neighborhood places the boundaries at Fairmount Avenue to the south, Girard Avenue to the north, the Schuylkill River to the west, and Corinthian or 19th Streets to the east. Various other definitions place the eastern and southern boundaries at different points, with the northern and western boundaries nearly always constant. Some definitions also include the area of Girard College, which lies north of Girard Avenue.

Philly’s Art Museum Area is also known as the Museum district or the Parkway District, and generally includes the Fairmount real estate area and Logan Square real estate area.
