Parker, sometimes called the “Smallest City in the USA,” was named for Judge John Parker, a lead surveyor founder/owner of the community. At the height of the northwestern Pennsylvania oil boom in the 1870s, however, the municipality grew to over 20,000 residents. Our featured home was built in 1880 when the boom was still going but was beginning to wean. After the boom went bust in the mid 1880s, the “city” returned to its historic small village size of 840 people.
