As Harry Kyriakodis said on Hidden City Philadelphia: “At 1548 Adams Avenue in Frankford there is a small, modest home with a big, important history. The two-story house is believed to have been built between 1712 and 1718 and is one of the oldest historical structures listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historical Places. ”
Reports Hodynski: “He is upgrading Electric and needed to replace the First floor’s floor due to termites but is restoring as much as possible. Purchased 200-year-old tongue & groove planks from an old barn to redo floor. It will now be a 2.5 Bedroom House with kitchen & Bath on 1st floor.”
