Between 1866 and 1872, Keebler erected a three-story building on 264 North 22nd Street and added an additional story onto 260, 262 and 258 North 22nd Streets. Keebler initially employed 45 or so workers–it could be said that he baked goods the old fashioned elfin way—the “Uncommonly Good” way.

Keebler died at age 71 at his home at 643 North 22nd Street in 1893. In his relatively short life, Keebler was married three times and had at least eight children. He was buried at Mount Peace Cemetery, an Odd Fellows cemetery at 3111 West Lehigh Avenue not far from Laurel Hill Cemetery.

    One Smart Cookie: When Keebler Called Philly Home
    Some Philadelphians were dismayed by the demolition of the Nabisco plant in Northeast Philadelphia last summer. The factory, on the west side of Roosevelt Boulevard at Byberry Road, was a fixture of that part of the city for decades. The landmark building towered above the surrounding area and filled the air with the delicious aroma of baking cookies.
