C. 1872

This Federal-Italianate home was originally a two story school house and Odd Fellows lodge. In 1872, the three story front section was built by Joseph Hedrick, the official of the C&D Canal. In 1879, Mr. Hedrick was caught using canal funds to finance the work; he left the country and the house was sold at public auction. Joseph Steele purchased the home and erected the iron fence which bears the Steele name. In 1926, the Howard family purchased the home. Their daughter, Eloise, married Dr. H.V. Davis in 1938. The left side of the home was used as Dr. Davis' medical offices until his retirement in 1978. In 1984, the Lees purchased the home for their residence.
