The Hannah Bishop house, built 1817-1818, is shown at its original location on the north side of West Dublin Granville Road. Built on land originally owned by Bishop Philander Chase, the house was the residence of the Bishop family for many years. Hannah Bishop lived there for over seventy years. In 1921, the house was moved to 782 Hartford Street.

Keary J. Mabra, an African American businessman, ran a barbershop there for many years. His wife Maude maintained that she was the first woman to vote in Worthington when women got the vote in 1920. An August 30, 1974 "Columbus Dispatch" article, "Worthington Woman Broke Ice at Polls," describes her recollection of entering Worthington City Hall at 5 am on November 2, 1920, to cast the first vote by a woman. She said that she and her husband voted so early so that he could get to work on time as the town's barber.

The Hannah Bishop house has since been restored and remodeled.
