Bunting House, Philadelphia, Needs to be saved.


Bunting House, Philadelphia, Needs to be saved.

Dr. Ross Richardson Bunting built this Second Empire house in 1880. It faces imminent demolition to make way for a retail center. Today's Philadelphia Inquirer has an article about it on page B1. It appears that something may be able to be worked out with the developer to save it. I saw a good article on the Web about the situation on the Roxborough Patch (this is in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia), which cited the work of local historian John C. Manton on the site's historical significance.

Comments : This house was razed three months ago, according to an article at p. B1 in todays Philadelphia Inquirer. The story says that there are rumors that a Wendys is going to be built on the site, which has a lot of neighbors upset.
