Significance: Between 1748-1750 Elizabeth Coates Paschall built Cedar Grove near her father's farm in Frankford, an area northeast of Philadelphia. Designed to serve as a modest summer retreat, the house was greatly altered and enlarged during the 18th century and moved to Fairmount Park in 1926. Cedar Grove contains many of its orginal 18th and 19th century furnishings and stands today as a monument to its builder, the Paschall-Morris family, and the Colonial Revival movement in America.
