Primarily mid-19th century with some late 18th century that survived a big fire in the early 1800s.

Gloucester, Mass. It's not museum-like but you can't turn around and not hit or see a 17th or early 18th century building. Love going into its city limits and seeing the sign declaring it was founded three years after the pilgrims landed, 1623!

Also Newburyport, Mass is like a smaller Portsmouth. Our friends live in a house from the 1760s and the house next door, a museum, is circa 1670!

Philadelphians still walk the same streets and visit the 5 public squares commissioned by William Penn in 1682:

Most of that area is modern now, though?

The same could be said for New Haven, which was the first grid planned city in the US in 1640, but no 17th century structures and only a couple from 18th century still stand.

^^^ Nope. Society Hill contains the largest concentration of 18th and 19th century architecture in the US: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soci...,_Philadelphia.

Elfreths Alley in Old City, possibly the oldest residential street in the country, dates back to 1702: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elfreth%27s_Alley

Society Hill is a cool spot, but isn't it ONE of the highest concentration, not THE? I would imagine Charleston would have more.
