Home connected to Taylor Swift may get honor. Brian Taff reports during Action News at 4 p.m. on June 21, 2017. (WPVI)

A home in Philadelphia with a connection to pop sensation Taylor Swift may soon be dubbed historic, but not because of the music superstar.

The Philadelphia Historical Commission is set to consider 319 Green Lane in Roxborough for historic designation and preservation.

The home belonged to Charles Baldi, a powerful figure in the city's political about a century ago.

Baldi also happens to be the great-great-grandfather of Taylor Swift.

That fact, though, will likely not be a factor in the Commission's eventual decision.
