Comments

"The five acres which comprise the country-seat were purchased of Dr. James Anderson. The place is on Lancaster Avenue, in front of the campus of Haverford College. The house was built in A.D. 1877 and 1878, the architect being Mr. J.C. Sidney, and the builder, Mr. Davis, of Conshohocken. The material of the dwelling is gray stone. The place is called Brightstone, by reason of the mica sparkling in the stone."
