A quick note on the builders

The house was built between 1857 and 1859 by two brothers; Joseph and Daniel Fulmer. One was a blacksmith and the other was a whitesmith. It is unclear right now which brother was which. It is clear that the two of them had a family business which was run out of a small building two doors down the street. I will be posting more on the history of the house on a daily basis. I would like to give credit for my current resources to Tom Jones of Easton, Pa. He has written an extensive pamphlet on the history of the house and has done considerable research. I am referencing his writings for much of my initial posting. We would like to thank him for all of the hard work he did in acquiring this information.
