Emily Elizabeth Holman

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Emily Elizabeth Holman was born somewhere in Pennsylvania back in 1854.  I could not find any information about her childhood, schooling and so on.  What I can tell you is the rest of the story, so let’s get to it.  She married David (date unknown) the union produced no children. 

She worked as a clerk in an architectural firm, before deciding to embark in her own firm.  In 1893, she opened E.E. Holman Architectural Firm in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  She was successful as many of her clients were well know, such as John Hay, Secretary of State, Thomas C. Cairns, and Almon Turner to name a few.  She published her first plan book in 1884, she didn’t have a specialty, but her focus was on residential homes.  She retired in 1914.  She died in 1925, she was 71.

What you may not know about Emily is that she planned some historical sites you may have heard of, the Goold House in Wilder Village Historic District, Wilder, Vermont and the National Park Seminary to name two.

I do love architecture James Dray but absolutely nothing in your story rings a bell. I was thinking maybe the surprise was that she designed a lot of the Sears catalog homes.
