The attached PDF allows you to quickly view maps of all seven districts.
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:

Haverford Civic Association Board member, Lee Tabas, and veteran supporters and past Board Members Jane Carton and Tash Duff did it again!
The planters never looked better.
Haverford Civic Association Board member, Lee Tabas, recently spruced (no pun intended) up the two planters we maintain at the Haverford Train Station. Taking over for Jane Carton, who had done this for years, Lee planted some new cacti and trimmed the small evergreen tree found in one of the planters.
