I often visit Harriton because of its beauty, history and exceptional educational programs. It is a must see if visiting the western Philadelphia suburbs.

I recently walked the grounds of Harriton House, near Bryn Mawr College which was a reach back into early Pennsylvania’s rich agricultural heritage. William Penn granted 700 acres of wilderness to early Welsh Quaker settlers, which explains the abundance of Welsh names in the area....More
