Comments

"Lynhurst is the name of I. Layton Register's place, near Haverford and Ardmore. 'Lyn' designates the stream ad water-fall, and 'hurst' the extensive woods which adorn the forty acres surrounding this charming country-seat. The stream is utilized by an overshot wheel at the fall, as power to force water from a spring to the house as well as the stable... Mr. Register has resided here in the summer for ten years. The house of bluish gray stone, with slate roof, was constructed after he purchased the farm from designs of Furness, Evans & Co., from stone on the place."
