Overview


The Morelands and Bryn Athyn brings the four communities of Bryn Athyn, Hatboro, and Lower and Upper Moreland townships into focus through many rare and unpublished photographs. Settled in the early 1700s and located on Old York Road, Hatboro was an early center of commerce and travel. Later, with the development of the trolley and Willow Grove Park, the town of Willow Grove became an important center for business. Mills along the Pennypack Creek contributed to the early settlement of the communities throughout the area, especially in Lower Moreland. Finally, the railway brought not only regional development but also members of the Swedenborgian community who established their religious center in Bryn Athyn. The Morelands and Bryn Athyn captures the people and places that made the area's history so rich. From the Mineral Springs Resort to the Sorrel Horse Inn, from a Revolutionary War battle to a cathedral in Bryn Athyn, this volume is a stunning photographic history. Pictured are the homes of many of the area's first families as well as the later estates of the Pitcairn and Elkins families. Also included are the fire companies, businesses, schools, people, and institutions that have defined the area.
