Where Was This Photo Taken?

It was somewhere in the Malvern area, but where exactly?

The building in the photo above was constructed in 1774. It still stands today.

Can you guess where the photo was taken? Submit your answers in the comments, and we'll post the correct answer with a current photo next Wednesday.

If you're going north on Cedar Hollow Road toward the Vanguard campus, does this sit on the left side just before the railroad bridge?

Part of Anselma? This looks too small to be a Mill, but it's a large spring house. hmmmmm

I'll admit, this was a tough one. I believe it's the Thomas (Sager) Grist Mill, c. 1774. 6004 Goshen Rd in Willistown. Doesn't appear to be visible from the road. Using Bing Maps, winter shots to see through trees, it's the small building dead center: http://binged.it/XXMpH8 You can see a connection to Crum Creek. It doesn't appear to be a "registered" building, so this might be private property. Might try a drive-by today.

This looks like the Pre-renovations at the General Warren Inne on Old Lancaster Road

That's what came to my mind, too. Wherever it is, the craftsmanship is incredible. I love these Pennsylvania fieldstone buildings in our area. Just look at those cornerstones, courses and rooflines. Can you imagine building that with the tools of the day? How I wish I could find a stone mason today with that kind of talent. Beautiful!

My guess is Mill Road, Charlestown Township. Former Mifflin Large property, then sold to Jim Bruder.

I have another Charlestown guess. On Charlestown rd near Chirch/puckering Dam?
Susan Hart January 27, 2013 at 05:39 PM
I think it might be the property on the left on Church Rd just past the overpass on 202 (if headed towards Swedsford Rd) where the farmer used to live. There is a building on the property that looks just like this. Just a guess!

Eric Lewis had it right he did his research. Pete gave everyone a hint (Library of Congress) If you look at the top of the photo you can see information to find it in the Library of Congress records. Way to go Eric.
