English: The Colonial Germantown Historic District — in the Germantown district of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
  • A National Register of Historic Places listed historic district since 1966.
  • The Colonial Germantown Historic District runs along Germantown Avenue between Windrim Avenue and Upsal Street (4500 to 6500 blocks); and was expanded with the 6500–7600 blocks of Germantown Avenue from the Fort Washington branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad to Sharpnack Street in the Germantown and Mount Airy neighborhoods of Philadelphia. Roughly 600 buildings are in the district, which runs about 3.6 miles along Germantown Avenue. It must be one of the largest Historic Districts on the NRHP, as well as one of the longest and narrowest.
