Preservation with Purpose
Designed by famed architect Horace Trumbauer, Lynnewood Hall is a 110-room Neoclassical Revival mansion in Elkins Park, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. It was constructed for industrialist Peter A. B. Widener between 1897 and 1900. Considered the largest surviving Gilded Age mansion in the Philadelphia area, it housed one of the most important Gilded Age private art collections of European masterpieces and decorative arts assembled by Widener and his younger son Joseph.
Today, the estate is on the market with no clear future or active stabilization by the current owner;
we aim to change that.
Saving Lynnewood Hall aims to secure the Estate and preserve the structures and grounds as both a House Museum and Art Gallery as well as a unique hotel and conference centre within the grounds.

Currently, our Chairman is working to complete SLH: Phase One Funding and fully form our project team. To achieve this goal, we need your help. Donations of all denominations will help us reach the target of Phase One.
Phase ONE: Our Team is actively meeting with benefactors, philanthropists and government officials to secure the necessary funding to form a registered 501(c)3 accreditation and gain ownership of the estate.
However, simple ownership of the Estate will not save it. Check out the Phases page for milestones necessary to preserve and repurpose Lynnewood Hall.
