Living in the 18th Century
Our accommodations for five nights on the 2nd floor of the Thomas Bond House looked out on small plaza. A bronze statue of William Penn occupies the center of the space on South 2nd Street that was once Penn’s home. Our abode was constructed by its namesake Dr. Bond in 1769 and is now operated as a 12-room Bed & Breakfast. It was the perfect base for our Philadelphia visit.
