The Powel House is a historic house museum located at 244 South 3rd Street, between Willings Alley and Spruce Street, in the Society Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Built in 1765 in the Georgian style, and embellished by second owner Samuel Powel (1738–1793), it has been called "the finest Georgian row house in the city." As with other houses of this type, the exterior facade is understated and simple, but the interior was elaborately appointed.

  • Beautiful house and fascinating history and artifacts. Loved the personalized tour and our tour guide was lovely.
  • My wife and I had our wedding ceremony at the Powel House and it was nothing short of magical. Guests loved the cozy, intimate setting and the garden worked perfectly for our ceremony. Meagan was helpful, friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend this venue to our friends. Meagan was flexible in making our vision come true and we are so happy with the result!
