The neighborhood extends north from Market Street to Spring Garden Street, east to 32nd Street, west to 40th and Spring Garden Streets, and to 44th and Market Streets.

Powelton Village was named after the Powel Family, seventeenth and eighteenth-century Welsh colonialists who held extensive estates in the area.
