Living Here

Some places just feel like home.

Why Roxborough?

Community in Roxborough is older than our nation. It runs deeper than the Schuylkill. It’s more diverse than the trees in Fairmount Park.

Where we live defines us. That’s why Roxborough is a place that both new families and long-established residents call home. Families choose Roxborough for the quality schools, established religious institutions, active civic organizations, and creative, locally-owned businesses. They stay because Roxborough is a place with roots. It’s a place worth settling into, a place that gets better with age.

We aren’t just a section of Philadelphia, we’re a neighborhood. And whether you’re just here for dinner, or you’re here for good, take a moment. Look around. Breathe deeper. And before long, Roxborough will grow on you.
