Letitia Court1

Letitia Court Located at 11-13 S. Letitia Street in Philadelphia was named after William Penn's daughter, who lived here upon her arrival from England. The half block, Front Street to Second Street and Market Street to Black Horse Alley, was given to her by her father. The street bisecting the lot was named after her. The original courtyard was later opened to Market Street in order to expand commerce. Christopher Ludwig, the first ginger bread baker in Philadelphia also called the property home. He served George Washington as the Baker General of the Revolutionary Army. The property was renovated in 1985 by renowned architects Jim Campbell and Bob Thomas. There is a shared roof top deck offering views of the Delaware River.
