Welcome to the home of C. Delores Tucker, the first African-American secretary of state for Pennsylvania and a longtime Civil Rights activist. Tucker lived at this Mt. Airy house, which was built in 1926, for 47 years until her death in 2005, according to the Historical Marker sign that sits in front of the property. Now, after a small price cut, the 5-bed, 5-bath home is on the market asking for $549,000. There is also an apartment above the detached two-car garage.
The spacious and colorful home is 3,857 square feet, and features built-in benches at the entrance. It also has original hardwood floors and French molding in the living area and dining room. Upstairs, the color-themed bathrooms are quite a sight, from the baby-blue trim in one to the seventies wallpaper in the other.
Again, the asking price of this history-filled home is $549,000.
