Levittown's First Official Family
The first 20 families arrived on
June 23, 1952. A group of reporters followed
John and Philomena Dougherty, Levittown's
first official family, as they
moved into their new home at 67
Stonybrook Drive. Like many original
Levittowners, they had moved up from Philadelphia.
Their front yard was still a
construction site, with new
landscaping and muddy streets, but the Doughertys
were happy to be home.
