Isaac Tripp House

-A A +A
1812; 1880 alterations. 1011 N. Main Ave.

Tradition credits two master carpenters from Rhode Island with the design of this pilastered Federal-style house, constructed for Isaac Tripp III, grandson of the first Connecticut settlers in the Scranton area. The five-bay facade, with its Palladian window above the front door, has been altered by Victorian-era alterations. Victoriana also marks the interior of the house, dating from an 1880 renovation that produced the bracketed front porch, elongated windows, and such interior details as Italian marble fireplace mantels.
