Long Description:
Though there were other residences in Allentown prior to when Trout Hall was constructed in 1770, Trout Hall is believed by the Lehigh County Historical Society to be the "Allentown's Oldest Home."

Originally built in 1770 by James Allen, son of Allentown's founder Wiliam Allen. Meant as a summer home, Trout Hall became a year-round retreat during the Revolutionary War - today it can be seen as it was in the 18th century.

There are several huge trees towards Walnut Street on the front lawn.
