Discovering Rittenhouse: A Historic Gem in Fairmount Park

Rittenhouse, often referred to as Rittenhouse Historic District, holds a special place in the history of Philadelphia. Nestled near Wissahickon Avenue in Fairmount Park, this quaint neighborhood encompasses the remains of an early industrial community, with roots dating back to the 17th century.

A Legacy of Innovation and Industry

Birthplace of Papermaking

RittenhouseTown is renowned as the site of the first paper mill in British North America, established in 1690 by William Rittenhouse and his son Nicholas. Flax woven into linen in nearby Germantown found new life in RittenhouseTown, where it was recycled into paper. The high-quality paper produced here was in demand by printers in Germantown, Philadelphia, and even New York City.

Historic Preservation Efforts

Despite the passage of time, the spirit of RittenhouseTown lives on through the dedication of organizations like Historic RittenhouseTown, Inc. Founded in 1984, this nonprofit is committed to preserving, restoring, and interpreting the rich history of RittenhouseTown. Through historic tours, paper-making workshops, and special events, Historic RittenhouseTown invites visitors to step back in time and experience the legacy of this remarkable community.

Exploring RittenhouseTown: A Journey Through Time

Architectural Treasures

RittenhouseTown boasts six historic buildings, each meticulously maintained by Historic RittenhouseTown. From the Abraham Rittenhouse Home to the Rittenhouse Bake House, these structures offer a glimpse into the past, showcasing colonial building methods and craftsmanship. Visitors can immerse themselves in history with cooking demonstrations at the Rittenhouse Bake House and paper-making workshops in a converted 20th-century barn.

Industrial Remnants

While many of RittenhouseTown's buildings have stood the test of time, the area also contains archaeological remains of its industrial past. Stone buildings finished in stucco hint at the once-bustling industrial complex and worker village that thrived here.
