Mixsell House - Easton, PA

Located at 4th & Ferry Streets, the Mixsell House long served as the headquarters of Northampton County Historic and Genealogical Society until the opening of the Sigal Museum in 2010.

In 1928, sisters Emilie Mixsell Lalor and Mary Mixsell gifted the Society with their grandfather’s residence. This two and one-half story structure was to remain the home of the Historical Society for the next eighty years. In 1948 Mary Illick gave the adjoining home to this Society. This building was converted into a Research Library and Reading Room.

Dear Sirs: My name is Henry Cumings Mixsell. I am the son of John D. Mixsell, deceased, of Bethlehem. His father, Austin D. Mixsell, was a Vice President of the Bethlehem Steel Company. Our ancestors include Phillip Mixsell, and I am in possession of a number of books, scrapbooks, and memorabilia pertaining to Dr. Mixsell and other members of the family in Easton. Would you be interested in seeing these? I can scan them and send jpgs to you for your perusal if you'd like. Just let me know. p.s. I have been to Mixsell Street, but have never been to the museum. I hope to visit sometime soon, perhaps in the spring.
