TODD HOUSE


A Brief History: The Todd House is located at the northeast corner of 4thand Walnut Street in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Constructed in Philadelphia in 1775, and still standing today sits the Todd House. The Todd House is known for being the former residence of Philadelphia lawyer, John Todd, and his wife Dolley Payne. They lived in the house from 1791 till 1793 when John Todd died of Yellow Fever. Widowed Dolley Payne went on to marry James Madison, who was elected to be the fourth President of the United States. In 1796, former Revolutionary War General Stephen Moylan moved into the brick house. He lived at the home until 1807. Today, the Todd House is a museum dedicated to showcasing what life was like for Philadelphia’s middle class residents of the 18thcentury.
