The Thomas Bond House is located at 129 South Second Street[1] in Old City, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Originally built in 1769, as the home of Dr. Thomas Bond, it has since been restored into a bed and breakfast. The house was listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places in 1968 and is within the Old City Historic District, a district on the National Register of Historic Places.[2][3][4][5] It is adjacent to the Independence National Historical Park about 3 blocks east of Independence Hall.[6] The main entrance faces south towards Welcome Park, the former location of William Penn's Slate Roof House.

History[edit | edit source]

The history of the Bond house reflects the economic history of this part of Philadelphia. The central core of the Bond house was built in 1769 by Dr. Thomas Bond Sr., a prominent physician and founder of Pennsylvania Hospital, which was chartered in 1751.[7][8] In 1824, a four foot extension with a new facade was added to the west side, and in the 1830s to 1840s, the building was extended eastward at the rear.[9]
