- "Was so named in loving remembrance of a wife & daughter. This is a fine & ample stone house, w/an extended piazza. It is surrounded by a beautiful lawn of considerable extent. The house has a high & commanding position, and there is a substantial stone barn which is a pleasant feature in country life. Mr. Wm. H. Kemble, the late owner was the President of the Phila. Traction Co. The country seat is on the road from Willow Grove to Chestnut Hill where is joins the Church Rd. This was called Stout Hill. Mr. Stout's property was bought after his death by Mr. Kemble. Mr.Kemble's fine massive stone gate posts, and large & pretty lawn are noteworthy. A great boulder juts into the road & a windmill has been erected over a spring. Mr. Stout's residence was lower down the hill on the opposite side"
