History

the second recognizable survivor from the independence era is this plain, gable fronted building which was erected in 1883 for PHilip Mundo. Originally, it served a combination of purposes: as a wine and beer saloon, a boarding house and as a personal residence for the six-member Mundo family. Mundo ran his saloon until about 1892 when he began leasing out the premises. During the early 1900s there was a succession of proprietors selling spirits or, during Prohibition, soft drinks and ice cream. Since 1925, the building has acquired the status as a West Franklin St fixture under the name of Hagedorn's
