The Little Lady

The Little Lady

A truly unique, custom built, blonde brick, terracotta and copper roofed Italian villa-style home known as one of the cherished “Romberger Homes” built in Allentown’s Historic West End in 1924. The house’s mixture of detailed cast stone, original Moravian tile, travertine marble and iron work give it a Mediterranean look and the copper roofed French door enclosed sunroom adds to the Old World charm.

The most unusual features are the cast stone portico, balustrade, window frames and other decorative aspects of the alluring exterior.

Perhaps the most unusual features of the home are the cast stone portico, balustrade, window frames and other decorative aspects of the alluring exterior. It is in these areas where the most visible reminders of it's builder, Daniel H. Romberger are apparent. Created as a wedding present for his daughter Edna “May” the home has an enduring value almost 90 years since its construction.

The wide front pathway invites passersby to journey into the bejeweled gardens. Cascading colors embrace the character of the home enticing viewers into the secret garden found in back. The backyard unveils the true voice of the home's tranquil personality earning her the nickname "The Little Lady."
