Lynnewood Hall', the Peter A.B. Widener estate designed by Horace Trumbauer c. 1898 in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. Widener was a traction and tobacco magnate with large holdings in the American Tobacco Company, Standard Oil and U.S. Steel where he was also a director. Along with his very good friend and neighbor William L. Elkins, who resided at 'Elstowe', the two helped develop the street car system in Philadelphia. The pair were linked for many decades and in Elkins' obituary they were referred to as the "Traction Twins." His son George D. Widener and grandson Harry Elkins Widener died on the sinking of the Titanic. Widener's art collection was considered one of the finest in the country and was so impressive that roughly one third of his obituary was dedicated to describing it. Widener died at the home in 1915 at the age of 80. In 1952 the estate was purchased by the Faith Theological Seminary and since 1993 has been owned by the First Korean Church of New York but remains vacant. Click HERE for more on 'Lynnewood Hall'.
