Above: House from Southwest  
Tthe house designed by Horace Trumbauer on the "Heights of Darby"
is a  magnificent house that needs friends.   The building has been horribly
damaged after scrappers cut away copper flashing from the
roof dormers
sometime after 2013 but the st
ructure, which became part of the Delaware
County Park system in 2016, with 4' thick stone walls, is still strong.  
Please Help
Note the parquet floors and woodwork
