The Todd House

Built in 1775, this site reflects the lifestyle of the middle class in 18th Century Philadelphia.
 
From 1791 -1793, it was occupied by lawyer John Todd and his wife Dolley Payne. Todd died during the 1793 yellow fever epidemic. Following her husband's death, Dolley re-married James Madison, who would go on to become the fourth President of the United States.
 
The Todd House is open by tour only. Free, timed tickets are available on the day of your visit at the Independence Visitor Center. Tours are limited to 10 people, and tickets are distributed on a first-come, first served basis. 
 
Accessibility: The Todd House is NOT wheelchair accessible, due to its 18th Century architecture, consisting of small spaces and steep, narrow stair cases.
The Todd House is located two blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.
