Plan Your Visit

Slought is located at 4017 Walnut Street in West Philadelphia, in a historic bank building from 1924 by architect George Kingsley. We are on the edge of the University of Pennsylvania campus, on one end of a "linear mile" that runs from 40th and Westminster to 40th and Walnut streets. This ten-block distance, which is characterized by shifts in economy, community and social trust, is emblematic of Philadelphia today.
