Comments

"We see the red-roofed house of Dr. Register after crossing a bridge at the head-waters of Mill Creek, and the remains of an old saw-mill. Dr. Register's house has a high position, and pleasant outlook, and the place opens on the Gulf Road. Clovelly is the name of the Doctor's country-seat, and a pretty wall bounds the entrance." ... "Dr. Henry C. Register's stone mansion at Mill Creek, Lower Merion, was constructed by Furness, Evans & Co. on a hillside, at a point where the rural view extends along Mill Creek Valley. Local stone furnished the material for the building, which is two stories high, with a red slate roof. It is of a composite style of architecture."
