Great Estates: Mansions on the Main Line

  • 1400 Waverly Road

Lower Merion Conservancy presents
GREAT ESTATES: MANSIONS ON THE MAIN LINE

The Main Line is filled with astonishing Gilded Age castles built by the captains of industry using the acclaimed architects of the time—Frank Furness, William Lightfoot Price, Addison Hutton. Conservancy director Mike Weilbacher gives us a visual tour of these Main Line mansions using both modern and old photographs, and tells some of the stories behind their construction. Of special focus will be Alexander Cassatt’s Cheswold, Henry Gibson’s Maybrook, Alan Wood’s Woodmont, Isaac Clothier’s Ballytore, Percival Robert’s Penshurst, legendarily destroyed in fit of pique, and many others, some long gone, some still wonderfully with us today.

Audience: Adults, children ages 12 & up
