It illustrates the family home of Major Daniel Phoenix, who was a local merchant, property owner and civic leader in the late 18th and early 19th centuries in Morristown. The house stood on the current site of the old Y.M.C.A building, which is now a commercial space known as the Courthouse Plaza. The building is located across from the Morris County Courthouse at 60 Washington Street in Morristown.<p><a href="http://morristownlibrary.org/HCFindingAids/Daniel Phoenix Jr article by Linda Ross.pdf" target="_blank">Read more</a>&nbsp;about the story of this property's transformation through the years, as it passed through the hands of several owners.</p> Wed, 01 Oct 2014 04:00:00 GMT http://www.jfpl.org/polNews.cfm?doc_id=25642
