Chain of Title

The chain of title on file at the Philadelphia Historical Commision indicates that the building was constructed between 1809-1812 and that, at the time of the census in 1837, the house was owned by Lemuel Franklin, who may have rented the site to an African-American family.

Chain of title prepared by Edwin Iwanicki, Research Assistant at the Philadelphia Historical Commission, August 9, 1962.
