The Cleaver family home in Port Penn, Delaware served as more than a family home. Located along the self-guided walking tour of Port Penn. Built in 1834 near the river in it also served as an office. The floor plan laid out like that of an urban townhome. Joseph had hopes that he would be a successful trade merchant. With the focus of him working to make trades happen between the Delaware River and the New Castle County farmlands. He did earn the title as one of the best-known merchants.
