This house, built by Samuel French, about 1845, was the home (1884-1904) of Matthew Stanley Quay. Born in 1833, Quay graduated at age 17 from Jefferson College. His first political office was as prothonotary. After a brilliant Civil War record and receiving a Congressional Medal of Honor, he served as secretary to the Governor, as legislator, Secretary of the Commonwealth, recorder of Philadelphia, state and national Republican chairman, and state treasurer. He was a United States Senator 1887-1900; 1901 to his death in 1904. He spoke and read several foreign languages and had one of the finest private libraries in America here.
