The Stotesbury Mansion, a grand Philadelphia landmark, is registered on the National Register of Historic Places. It is currently the home of the Philopatrian Literary Institute. It was built in 1870 by architect Wilson Eyre, Jr. who had been commissioned by Thomas McKean to build a spectacular home for his son, Henry McKean, as a wedding present. Thomas McKean was the namesake and descendant of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
In 1890, upon the death of Henry McKean, Mr. Edward T. Stotesbury purchased the home as an addition to his adjoining residence. At the time of purchase, the press heralded it as the largest and grandest townhouse in all of the East Coast. But that was only the beginning, because the man referred to as one of the wealthiest Philadelphians was to renovate the townhouse for more than 1.5 million dollars. In 1911, in anticipation of his upcoming nuptials, he commissioned the famous designer from England, Sir Joseph Duveen, who was the designer to such families as the Morgans, Vanderbilts and the Rockefellers. Several of the most elaborate additions were the Tiffany glass skylight above the grand staircase (now removed), the marble entryway, Dolly Madison’s fireplace from the White House that was purchased by the soon-to-be Mrs. Stotesbury in 1890, and the squash court installed on the fifth floor installed for Mrs. Stotesbury’s son, James H.R. Cromwell. Her son enjoyed the court for 10 years before marrying Doris Duke.
