In the 18th century, Tacony was a village in Oxford Township. A century later, the area was incorporated as a part of Philadelphia, known for being the home of the world’s largest saw works. Today the northeast neighborhood is known as being the name-bearer for three different naval vessels and for hosting the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge and its daily traffic of around 50,000 cars. The real estate market has shown modest gains over the past year, with the median listing price hovering around $120,000.
