This chapter focuses on the sale of Morris's properties along with his other holdings. It describes English-born architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe's critique of Morris's house on Chestnut Street and the dismantling of the house and resale of its materials. In the end, the mansion found its primary use through its metaphor-laden destruction. And that destruction was necessarily incomplete. Even today, remains of the storied building lurk below the city's sidewalks.
