Lemon Hill


This historic house was built in 1799 on the former estate of Robert Morris, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.  Chapter II-Philadelphia maintained the house for almost sixty years, 1957-2016. Dames’ mission was to increase awareness of this unique and nationally important Federal-style mansion and to teach awareness of our nation’s heritage, particularly, the period from 1800 – 1836 in Philadelphia. The chapter developed an interactive educational plan, which served approximately 8,000 visitors annually.
