- This unique property was the original Thomas Holme school house, built in 1794 and Historic Commission designated the property historic and listed on Philadelphia Register of Historic Places. The home does have fire damage and water damage. and is being sold as is condition. Attention investors and serious buyers. Enter at your own risk, do not go up the stairs, adults only in property. There is an abundance of parking on this lot which is on a half an acre plus a 2 car garage. Tons of charactor an potential!!!
Property must be independently verified for the current status and price.
A fire ravaged this in 2006. I found the Friends of Lower Dublin Academy website with some photos and history. Plus interior photos, before the fire and after the fire. Also some additional exterior photos here and here. The old school (which was later turned into a residence in the 1990s and lastly a lawyers office) was placed on Philadelphia’s Endangered Properties list, the fear is that the property will be bought with the house torn down and turned into commercial development.
8/15/12 Edit: I found an article that a school was trying to come up with funds to buy the structure and to turn back into a school. The articles I found were from 2011, I’ve not found anything more about if they were able to raise enough funds to buy the school.
