Beautiful Sunday visiting #gildedage Lynnewood Hall as well as the remains of Whitmarsh Hall.

Still hopeful that Lynnewood will not have the same fate as Whitemarsh 🤞🏻

I did this sketch from a photograph in the Pennsylvania State Archives of Whitemarsh Hall in Wyndmoor, PA — a spectacular neo-Georgian mansion also known as the Edward T.

Stotesbury mansion. It was designed for Stotesbury (a banking executive) by the “gilded age” architect Horace Trumbauer; built in 1921 and demolished in 1980 to make way for a development of townhouses. I found the photo in one of my favorite books, The Classical Orders of Architecture, by Robert Chitham. I was looking for information on James Gibbs and the influence of Palladio on his work in the 1700s. I learned that the mansion had 6 stories (3 of which were partly or fully underground), 147 rooms, 45 bathrooms, 100,000 square feet, and specialty rooms including a ballroom, gymnasium, movie theatre, a refrigerating plant, and four large greenhouses for growing trees and ferns. The gardens and landscaping, spread over 300 acres, were designed by the great urbanist and architect Jacques Gréber. Whitemarsh Hall had often been called the "American Versailles", because of the level of attention to detail in the gardens and in the main building. I was astonished to learn that the mansion was larger the the White in Washington, DC. The only things left, now, are the massive limestone pillars that were part of the front portico and the large belvedere at the back. The gatehouse is now a private residence. It’s an interesting history. Wish I could’ve seen this house in its heyday.

A Gatehouse is a small building set at the entrance to an estate that acts as a security post to control who comes and goes form the estate.

They may also provide living quarters for security and drivers. They were of high importance for country homes during the Gilded Age.
The following are some examples of Gilded Age gatehouses:

#1-Vanderbilt Hyde Park Mansion, Hyde Park, New York

#2-The Breakers, Newport, Rhode Island

#3-Lynnwood Hall, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania

#4-The Biltmore House, Ashville, North Carolina

#5-Whitemarsh Hall, Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania

#6-Coe Hall, Oyster Bay, New York

#7-Rynwood , Old Brookville, New York

The garden at Whitemarsh Hall in a moment of superb perfection.

The serenity here was just a brief moment, as the dark clouds of the 1930s Great Depression began to drift over the even perfect world of the very rich. Soon after, Edward & Eva Stotesbury left Whitemarsh Hall and closed up the house to travel abroad. Upon leaving Eva is said to have reflected, that if they never returned that she and Edward had enjoyed ten wonderful years of magnificent splendor! #whitemarshhall #mansion #mansions #gildedage #gilded #gildedagemansions #architectureporn #garden #millionaire #billionaire #versailles #houseporn #wealth #luxury #money #rich #gardendesign #frencharchitecture #landscapearchitecture #palace #veryrich

A DIFFERENT MANSION by the same #Architect so both likley owned by melaniated families...Remember

the names have been replaced so this one probably was NOT called #WhiteMarshHall by the #original owner's
**I'm posting this since the same architect created both (Whatever the actual name of this glorious Mansion was before it was burned and looted AND ITS STATUES BEHEADED) and Lynnewood Hall Manor they were also both in PA this one outside of Philadelphia.

Aerial view of Whitemarsh Hall looking at the house from the garden. Whitemarsh Hall was located outside of Philadelphia and was one of the most perfect and elegant mansions built in the Gilded Age. Designed by architect, Horace Trumbauer for Edward and Eva Stotesbury, the palatial mansion was called the, "Versailles of America". When Henry Ford came to visit he said it was nice to see how rich people lived. Others have described the house as 20th century rich. The house had a short life as a private residence from its creation around 1920 to the death of Mr. Stotesbury in the late 1930s. After that the house became a laboratory for a chemical corporation and then an abandoned ruin for much of the 1970s. The house was ravaged and burned and stripped of it's fine interiors. The gardens overgrown and sculptural figures beheaded as mementoes. The house was finally demolished in the early 1980s and the site is now a townhouse development. All that remains besides a few garden elements are the monumental entrance columns that linger behind the new homes. A haunting reminder to the glorious past they once provided entrance to. #historichouses #billionaire #millionaire #mansions #luxury #gildedage #gildedagemansions #architectureporn #whitemarshhall #lynnewoodhall

This tremendously exquisite emerald necklace was once worn by Eva Stotesbury, wife of Edward T.

Stotesbury owner of the lavish Whitemarsh Hall, previously featured on my page.

Whitemarsh Hall was the third largest house ever built in North America.

It sat on over 300 acres of land in Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania, and was built by Edward T. Stotesbury for his wife, Eva as a wedding present in 1921. It is said to be the most beautiful private estate to ever be built in America. Whitemarsh Hall had 6 levels, 3 of which were underground it had 147 rooms and 45 bathrooms, spread out on over 100,000 square feet.

Also on the property were four large greenhouses for growing trees and ferns. Smaller greenhouses were for growing the flowers used to decorate the house for the lavish parties the Stotesburys liked to host. It took roughly 40 staff members to look after the estate and a yearly cost of $1,000,000 for upkeep. For nine years Whitemarsh Hall was the site of lavish balls and parties. However the party life dropped off after the Great Depression in 1929, and came to a halt after 1933 when the Stotesburys were criticized for enjoying a life of splendor while most of the country suffered from the depression.

After the death of her husband in 1938, Eva Stotesbury discovered, the family was relatively broke. Eva decided to close the mansion and moved to El Mirasol another family mansion located in Palm Beach, Florida. During World War II Whitemarsh Hall was used for storing the New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art treasures due to fears the Germans would bomb Manhattan.

Eva finally sold Whitemarsh Hall in 1941 and the new owners sold off much of the 300 Acres of land. It was then sold again in 1963 to an investment group. Efforts to preserve the mansion were unsuccessful, and the property became neglected and vandalized over the years, until it was demolished in 1980. A townhouse development called Stotesbury Estates was built on the property. The massive limestone pillars which were part of the mansion's front portico were left on the site as a tribute, along with the large belvedere at the back of the home.

It is regarded as one of the greatest losses in American architecture.

Now The Dark Tower series might not be unpopular (though you'll find it lacking on many 'best fantasy' lists), The Gunslinger sure is.
