Construction Begins On Historic Kensington Police Station

January 9, 2012 | by Angela Taurino

Construction has begun at the former 26th District Police and Patrol Station, located on Dauphin and Blaire in Kensington. Built in 1896, the elegantly proportioned building, with its curved corner and banded brick-work, is located in the National Register of Historic Places and historically significant for its Renaissance-style architecture. Current plans for renovation include a Philadelphia Federal Credit Union on the first floor and apartments or condos above.
