Nov. 14 Middletown Township Historical Society presents
MIDDLETOWN MONDAYS 2016  WHO WAS THOMAS LEIPER? by Angela Hewett, local historian and Site Director of the Thomas Leiper House
Thomas Leiper built a house in Wallingford in 1785 as his country home, near his snuff mills on Crum Creek and later stone quarries. He owned 750 acres from Yale Ave. to the Delaware River. His main residence, and his business primarily as a tobacco merchant, were in Philadelphia. Railroad historians give Leiper credit for constructing the first permanent railway in America. The Leiper Railroad was horse drawn and operated between 1810 and 1828 to carry stone from the quarry to Ridley Creek where it was transported by barge to ports on the Delaware River. The house stayed in the Leiper family until the 1970s and is now owned by Nether Providence Township. The Friends of the Thomas Leiper House have restored the house and furnished it in antiques to reflect a wealthy person circa 1800. Angela Hewett will bring Thomas Leiper to life for our audience. Lectures begin at 7:00 p.m. at Lima Estates, 411 North Middletown Road, Media, PA 19063. Free and open to the public, no registration required. In case of inclement weather or changes in the schedule please visit our website or call 610-316-5620.
