Tappan Street

Tappan Street, running from Cypress Street along the edge of Aspinwall Hill to Beacon Street, was laid out in 1860. A small area (two houses) on the east side of Tappan was included in the development of Blake Park.

Name Origin: Tappan Street was named for Lewis Tappan, a merchant and prominent abolitionist who built the house on Aspinwall Hill that later became the Blake House.
