Notes on the Geography of The Eastern United States: Harrisburg, Bellefonte, and Boalsburg: Photo 17
The Maclay Mansion, now the home of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, was built by William Maclay, son-in-law of the founder of Harrisburg, John Harris. The two together surveyed the original townsite in 1785, and Maclay built this house in 1792. He became literally the first U.S. senator, and the house stayed in the family until 1908, when a new owner began its expansion, adding dormers among other things. The house now looks half-buried, but it was not so at first, when a flight of stairs led up to the entrance. Either the house was lowered or the street was raised.
