Isaac Tripp, Scranton's first settler, built a house here in 1771. His son, Isaac II, began the present building - the oldest in Lackawanna County - about 1778. Both men represented this region in Connecticut's Assembly. Isaac III enlarged the house in the Federal style, 1812. Col. Ira Tripp remodeled it along Victorian lines during the period 1870-91. The house remained in the family until 1900.
