    I am very happy to see this blog. As one with close ties to Lynnewood Hall for twenty-plus years during the McIntire era, I look forward to future posts.

    What if anything is happening with Cheltenham Township’s efforts to have Lynnewood Hall declared a historial property? Have there been any recent attempts to purchase the estate from the Korean Church (if indeed they still own it)?

    As a descendant of the Widener family I would love to find a source to fund its restoration. I plan to visited soon.
