Featured Photo: Ashwood Gatehouse

1995.1002This image shows the entrance gate of a Villanova estate called "Ashwood," as it appeared around 1900. The building visible behind the stone wall at extreme right is Ashwood's gatehouse, which still stands at the intersection of Lancaster Avenue and Spring Mill Road. The gatehouse, which outlived the main mansion of Ashwood, has been used for various purposes over the years, most recently as a bank.
