Thanks to Pete Kennedy of Malvern Patch I now know…It is a home formerly known Linden Hall (used to have Linden trees – one of my late father’s favorite trees), once owned by a family named Paulovich.
Also…according to eastwhiteland.org it was also know as “Wayne Tavern”. Like Loch Aerie, which I have written about twice and photographed, East Whiteland ironically lists this home as a historical site on their website. Apparently they value these structures, only they don’t seem to push them towards permanent preservation?
At the risk of being repetitive, I will close with what I said in March –
Chester County needs to put some thoughts into their commercial corridors don’t they? It’s not like the location is suited for residential, yet here and there these old houses sit and rot. Some have sale signs on them, some are just rotting away by themselves.
What can be done with old buildings like this? I am a realist and know full well that not every old house should be saved. But some should. And Chester County needs better planning in their commercial corridors. Man cannot live by strip mall alone……
