Joint Street (aka Joint Alley)

Joint Street, formerly known as Joint Alley, is a one-block street that extends east from South 3rd to South 4th Street, nestled between Spruce and Walnut Streets. Its presence is documented in city directories from as early as 1850, although it is believed that houses were not constructed until 1888. The absence of listed houses in the 1887-1888 City Directory suggests that development occurred in the following year, as several houses are listed in the 1888-1889 edition. Over time, the number of houses dwindled, leaving only six remaining on Joint Alley by 1947. Today, Joint Alley stands devoid of any buildings, as they have been absent for many years.
