My wife and I visited the Todd House while walking through the historical section of Philadelphia. Built in 1775, it was occupied from 1791 -1793 by lawyer John Todd, and his wife Dolley Payne. Todd died during the 1793 yellow fever epidemic. Following her husband's death, Dolley married James Madison, destined to become the fourth President of the United States.The Todd House reflects the lifestyle of 18th century Philadelphia's middle class. It is open by tour only. Free 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.
