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.

K. J. Mabra, an African American businessman, ran a barbershop there for many years. His wife Maude was the first woman to vote in Worthington when women got the vote in 1920. The house has since been restored and remodeled.
