Remapping Streets in Queen Village in the 19th Century

The 1854 Act of Consolidation was passed by the Pennsylvania General Assembly to incorporate all of the townships, districts, and boroughs located in the greater Philadelphia County into the City of Philadelphia.  As a result, neighborhoods like Queen Village, which had operated under independent municipalities, officially became governed by the City.  To further these efforts, additional legislation was passed to provide uniform names for smaller streets that span across neighborhoods.  This list contains some of the alleys, streets, and courtyards in Queen Village that were renamed as part of this remapping project.
