Located in the lower northeast section of Philadelphia, Frankford was first settled by Swedish immigrants in the mid-seventeenth century, and it rivaled Philadelphia itself in notoriety. At one time, Frankford was considered one of the most thriving manufacturing areas in the state. Built along the banks of Frankford Creek, which flows into the Delaware River, Frankford grew for centuries and witnessed many of America's historical events and people. In 1854, it became a part of the city of Philadelphia. Frankford was home to the Frankford Yellow Jackets, one of the first NFL teams in America. Now a vital connection in Philadelphia's Market-Frankford elevated system, Frankford continues to be one of the city's best-known neighborhoods.

Tacony is a community carved out of the banks of the Delaware River in the lower northeast portion of the city of Philadelphia. Originally settled by the Lenni Lenapes, the community evolved from a sleepy fishing and railroad village in the mid-nineteenth century to a planned community at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution. Envisioning a community free of the urban ills that plagued his sprawling factory close to the center of town, Henry Disston purchased approximately 390 acres of land in Tacony in 1871, reserving 40 for his factory. He laid out streets with ample lots designed for homes to be sold or rented to his employees. A park was laid out in the center of the community and deed restrictions were imposed on all lots within his tract, prohibiting offenses that would interfere with stable family life, such as facilities for the sale or manufacture of alcohol. Nearly 130 years later, Tacony is a shining example of the foresight of Henry Disston. His creation of a utopian Victorian factory town is evident today in the diversity of architecture, religion, ethnicity, and wealth status that make Tacony unique. His deed restrictions are still in effect in the original Disston tract in Tacony.
