TAKE A LOOK!HISTORY!The original farm was 15 acres and ran deep from Swede Road prior to the existence of Hillcrest Avenue, for a distance upwards of 1,200' or so. John Henning purchased the farm in the early 1880s and produced harvests with a horse, a few cows and an orchard. At 4:00am every Friday and Saturday during the summers, John would rent a stall at the Farmers Market on Airy Street behind City Hall. Two stalls away was the Park Family of Park Avenue in Trooper; John married the Parks' daughter in the early 1890s. In August 1905, Grace Henning was born at the top of the steps in the Farm House. By the 1920s Grace commuted to University of Pennsylvania to complete her bachelor's degree.The Farm House, Barn and Carriage House were converted to residential rental units in the late 1950s.The Farm House contains three rental units. The Barn has two rental units. The two-story, detached Carriage House is a single-family unit. The remaining 2.8 acres boast 345 feet of frontage and two driveways at either end of the front border which could provide building footprints for additional use of the lot.With plenty of charm and character, this property offers a country-like appeal while tucked in a suburban setting, convenient local to shopping and roads.
