The Colonel William Bond House
143 Ontario Street, one block from Niagara Street ~ Lockport, NY
A National Register Home built in 1824 by Colonel William Bond was the first brick home in Lockport. Occupied over the years by various owners, the home came in to the possession of the Chase family in 1887 and remained in that family until 1968. The Chase family were relatives of Salmon P. Chase, Abraham Lincoln’s Secretary of the Treasury and later Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The house is furnished primarily in the 1820′s Empire period. Since this house is completely and fully furnished, special arrangements must be made if your class wishes to tour this home.
