Dr. Webster’s second house, a frame residence in the Greek Revival style, stood for more than a half century at 204 West Broadway. It was later moved to East Girard to make way for a handsome brick residence on the site, built by his grandson. Today, the new Immaculate Conception School building occupies that corner.
