Not a photowalk but I have never been to this historic mansion in NE Philly just before the Bucks county line. I want to check it out. Maybe some of you are also curious.
The SEPTA Trenton line has a stop at Torresdale and the 84 and 19 bus stop there also.
Short walk down Grant Ave to the estate. If driving there is parking behind the house.

Many of Philadelphia’s first families built their country estates on the banks of the Delaware River. They came by ferry, carriage, and later train, to escape the heat of summers in the city. It was at these grand estates they entertained some of the most prominent figures in the history of our nation. Glen Foerd is the only Delaware River estate located in Philadelphia, which is open to the public. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
