If you are ever in Philadelphia, perhaps you could attempt to find 1316 Callowhill St., this use to be the address of a patent office, owned by H.H. Holmes and his partner Ben Pitezel, the elusive address is now a parking lot which stretches the length of an entire city block. Just across the road stands the North American Building, but there use to be a station servicing the Philadelphia and Reading Railroads.

Just down the road is the building which holds The Philadelphia Inquirer, the very paper which covered all of the salacious news stories during the time of H.H. Holmes.

This is an odd piece of a neighborhood now, filled mostly with abandoned buildings, an area tucked between Chinatown and the poverty-stricken portion of North Philadelphia. But when H.H. Holmes wandered these streets, the city was very different.
