Planters Revamped for the Season

Thanks, neighbors, for the beautiful seasonal planter arrangement at Haverford Station for Winter 22-23!!

Such a nice way to welcome travelers to Haverford!

Haverford Civic Association appreciates you!!

Developing Haverford Station

The Haverford Civic Association hopes to interest a developer/contractor in rehabbing and tenanting empty spaces of the historic Haverford Station.

This train station is owned by AMTRAK, who, in exchange for repairs and improvements, would be willing to make a long-term, below-market master lease. After rehabilitation, the developer would then lease space out at the station to develop cash flow.

With the right team, members of the community could potentially become investors in the project. 

If you would like further details, please contact us at  

Please share this post with any area developers you may know!

Pennswood Road Bridge Reopened

The Pennswood Road Bridge in Bryn Mawr was reopened on December 16, 2021, after being closed for 17 months for reconstruction.

Huge thanks to Commissioners Scott Zelov and Anthony Stevenson, shown here cutting a ceremonial ribbon. They were pleased to report that the project was completed five months ahead of schedule!

“It is a beauty,” said Commissioner Zelov. “I hope you will take a drive or a walk over it to appreciate the exceptional masonry and detail.”

Researching Our Past

HCA Board member Lee Tabas recently visited the Lower Merion Historical Society and had a great time researching old places and things in the Township.

Dedicated volunteers have it well organized, and Lee found three or four notebooks with old photos of places and estates in Haverford. We have posted three of the photos Lee found.

The photo at the top is Station Road from Lancaster Avenue in 1912.

Here is the same view from 1980:

And finally Lee captured a view of the Haverford College duck pond from 1948:
