c. 1820

Hon. Judah Colt (1761-1832), one of Erie County's earliest citizens, settled at Colt Station, 1796, as the agent for Pennsylvania Population Co., the county's first land developer. Moved to Borough of Erie, 1804, serving as Burgess, 1813 & 1820-21. He built this Federal style house about 1820 at the S.W. corner of E. 4th & French Sts. where he entertained Marquis de Lafayette (1757-1834), June 3, 1825, during his celebrated visit to U.S. Also, home to nephew Hon. Thomas G. Colt (1805-1861), last Burgess and, in 1851, first mayor for newly incorporated City of Erie. House moved c. 1890 to 345 E. Front St. due to its poor condition, was dismantled and rebuilt here in 2018.
