Stephen Girard Farmhouse
Interior Finishes Study

At the request of the Fairmount Park Commission, the Trust performed an interior finishes study of Stephen Girard’s Farmhouse located in Girard Park. The intention of the study was to examine portions of the interior in order to make recommendations for an appropriate paint restoration scheme. As part of the study, select interior elements were examined for evidence of original and subsequent finishes. In additions to physical investigation of these portions of the building, archival documentation and historical images were referred to and utilized throughout the course of the study.
