The Powell House in Philadelphia is a beautiful townhouse from the Revolutionary period. Washington became good friends with the Powell's and was entertained here as often as he visited.
He stayed in the row house next door. That house was torn down. Washington used it after the Spanish Representative who was using it passed away and was buried in Morristown.
The Powell's are known to have thrown a party in Washington's honor in their music room. It was there that George danced with Ben Franklin's daughter.
