The David Bradford House may look like a modest, two story house today, but it was already a mansion by the time?s standard in 1788. It was made entirely of stone, with mahogany stairways. Its furnishings were imported from Philadelphia, making the home more expensive.

The most notable thing about the David Bradford House, though, is its owner and resident, David Bradford. The man was a very prominent figure in the community, being a very successful lawyer in the county. He also led the Whiskey Rebellion, and became an outlaw for quite some time, until president John Adams pardoned him.

The David Bradford House is a National Historic Landmark since 1983. It is now operated as a historic house museum by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, with the aid of the Bradford House Historical Association.
