Knapp Hall

Rittenhouse District 12

Continuing east, cross Mozart Place and come to a smaller building, also belonging to Curtis, known as Knapp Hall. Originally it was the home of Theodore F. Cramp, the shipbuilding magnate, and later the salon of Elizabeth Arden, the cosmetician. A copy of a French townhouse, as is the one adjoining it, Knapp Hall strikes a note of elegance along the quiet street.
