33. Robesons' Second House

The Robeson family moved to this house when Reverend Robeson was dismissed as pastor of the Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church. He lived in this house until 1907, then he and Paul moved to Westfield, NJ. It was in this home that Paul's mother's clothes caught on fire when she was tending to a coal stove in the parlor of the house. She died as a result of severe burns.
