This stucco over brick house, which features two tall internal chimneys at each gable end, was built in the Greek Revival style in about 1831 by Thomas Kennedy, a former Bucks County sheriff and the first Superintendent of the Delaware Division of the Pennsylvania Canal. The Canal was used to ship coal to Bristol from northeastern Pennsylvania, and behind this house was one of the town’s many wharves for coal boats. Elsewhere on this tour, you will see the canal’s former terminus, where it joined the Delaware River.
