Hi Gerry! Your website is out of sight. You've outdone yourself & should be extremely proud. You are a very special, creative & passionate person. I want to thank you for the personal tour of Whitemarsh. It was a night that I will never forget! Very magical, just like you (& me!) Even the sky was full of stars that night. Haven't seen that in ages. Keep up this creativity-never let go of it,it's your special gift!! I will always remember you!! P.S. Keep a bottle of good Merlot chilled for me & you again. Hopefully soon!! Carol Drigo

Hi Gerry. I have just finished a virtual visit to Whitemarsh Hall. It was great! Actually, I lived in the Philadelphia area (Mt. Airy) years ago ('70's) and have visited the old Stotesbery mansion. Could our paths have crossed? It was nice to re-visit. So sorry to hear it is not standing anymore. Your photos brought back some great memories. Thanks, Cindy

Thanks for all the good info on Stotesbury Mansion. I was visiting my parents in Wyndmoor for Thanksgiving and my brother and I took his family up to see the remains of Stotesbury (what LITTLE is left). We did lots of reminiscing about our childhood treks through the backyards & up the hill, to explore the mansion. Realizing my knowledge of Stotesbury is a combination of fact and fiction, I did a search today and found your site. It couldn't have been a better find. Your information was fascinating and your experiences at the mansion seem very similar to mine. I suppose we share that with a generation of kids from Wyndmoor. The pictures you included were fabulous and brought back lots of memories. I immediately emailed your website address to my brother. I would love a way to get prints of a photo or two. Any suggestions on how I might find some? Thanks for such an insightful tour. I even pinpointed my parents' house on the aerial map! PS-I enjoyed exploring the rest of your site too!

I love your page it is so intriguing to me. I like to look at houses (floor plans) and see how I can change them I might only be 13 but I defintly want to be an drafter/decorator etc... I wish that someone would restore this wonderful fantastic house. It makes me sick to look at the damage. Maybe someday someone can build a repilica and have it as a museum or something.

Hello, Just wandering the web to see if there were any early pictures of the Walsh Mansion in Washington D.C. Like you I grew up wandering Walsh (now the Indonesian Embassy) since my dad worked there. Saw your page in the search and thought that I might stop by. Wonderful pictures. I love that turn of the century craftsmanship. Where did you fing those early pictures and how did you manage to get them scanned? Truly breath taking. Thanks!

Gerry, Cooool webpage, as my eight year old daughter would say! Just came back from a hike in the Adirondacks and found your page by looking up "Giant Peak"! Isn't the WEB awesome? I am a marine photographer who went to the Adirondacks to"come up for a breath of fresh air". Look for my future webpage @ yachtphoto.com!

Gerry! We had probably crossed paths wandering around Stotesbury Mansion. I grew up in the area, and as teenagers used to go there and explore. Remember the Sub-basements, Bowling Alley, Barber Shop? At the time we had found pictures there of Cadillac Limos parked in the front. From the looks of the pictures, they were from the early 60's. Wish I had them today for ya. Thanks Again for the Web Page. reading your introduction made me live those same days all over again.......Much Appreciation!!!!!!

Many thanks for the photographs and biographical information about a (sur-)namesake of mine (I'm of British, not American origin myself)! His name was well-known to me, but the Whitemarsh Hall pages have provided some fascinating insights. Was a full biography of Edward T. ever written?

Gerry, Great pictures of Stotesbury Mansion. Reminds me of Susan Hildebrand and all the fun teen years that we no longer share. It's always fun to stir the old memories. By the way, is that your sexy, gorgeous ex-wife #1, mamma to that terrific gorgeous daughter Diana Serianni, in the picture of Stotesbury ballroom?
