PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia home where Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly grew up and accepted a marriage proposal from Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1955 is on the market.
Philly.com reports (http://bit.ly/29gqYxy ) the six-bedroom, 2.5-story Colonial in the city's East Falls section was listed last week for an initial asking price of $1 million.
