Comments

"This fine country seat w/its wide & beautiful lawn is at the corner of Church Rd. & Mermaid Lane. A year ago this was an open field. On March 7, 1891, ground was broken & on April 7, 1892, the house was occupied. Wm. H.Kemble began the house for his son, Clay Kemble & the son finished it. James H. Windrim was the architect & Jacob Garber the builder. This large stone mansion is a striking object from the road & the elevation makes it visible from Norristown, 9 miles distant"
