Multiple Owners, but Development is Averted -- 1876-1901
This chronology reflects current
information. Research is ongoing.
Thomas Wistar Jr.'s will requested sale of his property and 102 acre farm to his neighbor Charles Linton. Linton then leased it to his son until 1888.
Between 1888 and 1901 the farmstead had four owners who appear to be land developers interested in dividing the farm into lots suitable for development. Fortunately, this did not happen.
