Cobbs/Mill Creek

Cobbs/Mill Creek is generally bound by Market Street to the north, Baltimore Ave. to the south, 52nd Street to the east, and Cobbs Creek Park to the west. It is often locally referred to as "The Southside", in reference to its location to the south of Market Street and above the Baltimore Ave. border of Southwest Philadelphia. In 1998, the Cobbs Creek Automobile Suburb Historic District was created, with Cobbs Creek Parkway, Spruce St, 62nd St, and Angora St its boundaries. 1049 buildings are protected, with Tudor Revival, Colonial Revival, and Bungalow/Craftsman architectural styles contained within the district.
