The first house facing the Square was erected in 1840.  In 1913, the architect Paul Cret, who was one of the men responsible for Benjamin Franklin Parkway and many of its buildings, designed the Square's entrances, central plaza with the stone railings, pool and fountain.  There are several houses still standing, but they have been converted into apartments.

Washington Square District = 1 mile from restaurant
210 Washington Square
Philadelphia, PA 19107
Washington Square was one of Philadelphia's five original squares as laid out in 1682 by William Penn's surveyor, Thomas Holme. Within 25 years of Penn's arrival, however, the square was being used as a potter's field and a burial yard for strangers in the city. For a cemetery, the Square was remarkably filled with life.  Beginning in 1776, fallen troops from Washington's Army were buried in the Square.  After the Square was closed as a cemetery, improvement started in the form of a public walk in 1815. A tree-planting program began the next year and the Square to this day wears the fruit of a city plan in which over 60 varieties of trees were sown.   The 6.4-acre Southeast Square was renamed Washington Square in 1825 to honor the great general and first President.
