Quadrant Private Wealth To Occupy Historic Bethlehem Home
May 31, 2017
Open House Scheduled During Historic Bethlehem House Tour
Bethlehem, PA — Quadrant Private Wealth will cap off the Historic Bethlehem Partnership’s annual house tour this year with an open house at its own new headquarters in the historic Lehman House at 2 N. Market Street in the city.
Quadrant is also proud to announce that it will serve as Historic Bethlehem’s Museums & Sites Premier Sponsor of the “Annual Rooms to View House Tour and Preview Soiree” for the next five years. The Lehman House at 2 W. Market St. will be part of the tour on Saturday, June 3 and an Open House for clients and friends will be held on Sunday, June 4.
Bethlehem Mayor Robert Donchez, state Sen. Lisa Boscola, state Rep. Steve Samuelson, members of Bethlehem City Council and other dignitaries have been invited to attend the ribbon-cutting at 3 pm on Sunday.
Located across Market Street from the prestigious Moravian Academy, the Lehman House holds the distinction of being the only property in Bethlehem zoned for both residential and commercial use. Known as the Bernard E. Lehman House, the home was built by immigrant Ernst Lehman in the 1840s, and the property also housed Lehman’s brass works, the first of its kind in the Lehigh Valley.
“We believe this is a tremendous opportunity for Quadrant Private Wealth to retain its roots in Bethlehem and continue to be a contributing member of the community,” said Quadrant Founding Partner and Chairman Herman L. Rij. “The Lehman Home is a unique property with a wonderful history, and we believe that it will provide our company with a strong foundation and inspire us to grow and prosper as we help our clients do the same.”
Quadrant has been based at 1 W. Broad St. for the past three years.
Quadrant is working to restore and document the history of the Lehman House and contractors have already found a letter from 1906, a newspaper from 1902 and writing on the wall from that same period when they removed the wallpaper. Behind the home is a clapboard building where Ernst Lehman and his son, Bernard, once produced trombones for the Bethlehem Trombone Choir, according to real estate marketing documents from past sale offers.
The Lehmans’ Lehigh Valley Brass Works moved from the site in 1863, according to published histories, and relocated to the south side of the Lehigh River where it became the Bethlehem Foundry and Machine Shop.
