Welcome to the Francisville Neighborhood

Development Corporation (FNDC)

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." ~ William Penn

The Historic Francisville Neighborhood is a unique walk-able community located in the Philadelphia Art Museum Area with excellent public transportation within minutes of City Hall!  The area has historic ties to the City's Founder William Penn and was the original homeland of the LENNI Lenape Indians whose culture and governing structure had a great deal of influence on Penn's Holy Experiment.


The eclectic array of amenities growing on our neighborhood commercial corridors compliments historic museums and sites along the Ben Franklin Parkway and the beautiful Fairmount Park Kelly Drive!

We invite you to visit or come be a positive part of our diverse community!

Join us as we envision, shape and build a community that loves, honors and respects all!

Live ~ Work ~ Shop ~ Play ~ Grow
