- The residence of Major Luther S. Bent, on the Drexel Road, bears this appropriate name by reason of its many arches. This was the first house built by Wendell & Smith at Overbrook on the north side of the railway track. This is the oldest house on the tract, except the old George House, which is a century or two ahead of it. The architects were Boyd & Boyd. The house was erected four years ago, and purchased by Mr. Bent in April, A.D. 1895. The material is stone in the first story and brick above. The stable is a very fine building, corresponding to the design of the house."
