Inscription. In 1832, prominent brickmaker, builder and borough councilman David Kennedy built the Federal-style corner house as his residence. A unique feature is the oversized brick rear section added in 1879. Kennedy, a weaver by trade from Ulster, completed the row house effect in 1836 with the center house directly west. Both houses listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
