James McCrea Houses, 108-110 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, PA
- Upscale 2x6134x7680
Significance: The James McCrea Houses were attached twin middle-class late 18th century residences with their original fabric largely intact and unaltered by modernization including rare-to-find intact twin frontispieces. The cellar of 110 housed a commercial brick bake oven, one of the last of its type in the city. The houses' location at the east entrance to Independence National Historical Park made them a highly visible introduction to the historic area and an important element of the streetscape.
