Long before the emergence of Rittenhouse Square, the very first house of the Square was erected in 1840. From this point on, the Square went on to keep its high residential quality. A building boom began in the 1850s, and by the second half of the 19th century; the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood became the most fashionable residential section of Philadelphia.

Architect Paul Cret, one of the men responsible for designing the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and many of its buildings, designed Rittenhouse Square’s entrance in 1913. He also designed the Square’s central plaza with stone railings, pool, and fountain.

Even back then, to have lived on or near Rittenhouse Square was a mark of prestige. Many of the houses that once stood as private homes in Rittenhouse Square now exist as Phila Luxury and High-Rise Condos, town homes, and/or apartment buildings.
