Designed and constructed in 1839 by Philadelphia architect William Kelly as the Cashier’s residence, this unassuming Greek Revival townhouse is located next to the History Center at 417 State Street.
The simplistic stucco exterior masks the interior beauty of the building. Inside, marble flooring, vaulted ceilings, keyhole shaped doorways, coffer ceilings, hand-grained decorating, and delicate molding accent the uniqueness and elegance of the home.
The building features furniture, artwork, costumes, and other items relevant to the home’s occupants and the Victorian Era (1839-1901). In addition, smaller exhibits are integrated into the larger house exhibit and feature museum collections significant to the home’s era. (i.e. Souvenir Spoon Collection, Blueware Collection, Doll Collection, Linen Collection, etc.) While the furnishings are not original to the house, the beds, cupboards, paintings, chairs, and other pieces illustrate the types of furniture residents of the home would have used.
