Willistown Scout Cabin Comes Down
The cabin was used for decades by Troop 78, but had fallen into disrepair in recent years.
The Boy Scouts cabin on Grubb Road in Willistown was torn down Wednesday. The cabin was in poor condition after years of non-use.
Troop 78 Scoutmaster Steve D'Antonio gave some of the cabin's history in a comment on a previous Malvern Patch article:
The old cabin was torn down today, September 19th. It was used by the troop from 1947 to 2002. Originally a summer home, it was expanded with a $1000 gift from the VFW Womens' Auxiliary in 1947. The troop moved there shortly after the old Greentree School burned down.
Lots of memories were made there and in the woods "up the hill" that were lost to the twelve McMansions on Veterans Way. The troop carries on the tradition of excellence set by Ernie Heegard at its new location near the baseball fields with over 60 Scouts enrolled in an active program.
