Comments

"On the brow of the hill due north of Narberth Station, facing the valley which extends far to the southwest, commanding a fine view of the same, is the home of Mr. Edward Forsythe, shown in a plate. Its southern exposure secures not only a delightful view but enjoys the winter sun, as well as the prevailing southwestern breezes of the summer. It is situated at the corner of Price and Narberth Avenues. The ground, comprising three acres, was purchased of the Price estate, this estate having acquired title direct from William Penn. The house was built by the owner in 1890, the first story being constructed of gray stone quarried in the neighborhood; the second story is of frame. The architect who planned the same was Mr. Charles W. Bolton, of Philadelphia."
