________________________ 1704-1706 Manning Street | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania | c. 1918 • Built in 1918, the residences at 1704 and 1706 Manning Street are part of one of the oldest and most affluent neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Surrounding a public park bearing the same name, Rittenhouse Square has proven to be a place rich in the city’s history, arts, and culture since 1825 • Originally Southwest Square, Rittenhouse was one of the five original open-space parks planned by William Penn. It was soon renamed for clockmaker and astronomer, David Rittenhouse • However, U.S. Congressman James Harper would establish the neighborhood’s distinct style. When he built a townhouse on Walnut Street – the first property on the Square – its stately, patrician design would define the neighborhood for years to come • The Square became home to many wealthy Philadelphians in the 19th century including Philadelphia Railroad president Alexander Cassatt, and department store founder John Wanamaker. Churches and exclusive clubs designed by renowned architects soon popped up; and by 1913, French architect Paul Phillipe Cret gave the Square a Parisian feel when he redesigned parts of it to resemble Paris gardens • WW2 brought a real estate boom with modern apartments, office buildings & condos joining the elegant neighborhood. Once known for its Victorian mansions, the Square became a center for modern-day living with high rise apartments and even higher-end retail stores • Today, Rittenhouse Square remains a favorite for both city-dwellers and those just passing through. A popular lunchtime spot for Philly locals and even a desired set location for Hollywood films, Rittenhouse continues its renowned legacy as a destination for arts, events, and the stately homes that line its streets • Know more?

________________________ Old Westbury Gardens | Old Westbury, New York | c. 1906 • Although Old Westbury Gardens is the former estate of an heir to a U.S. Steel fortune, the stately mansion holds many ties to England. Built in 1906, Old Westbury Gardens was the conception of steel heir John Shaffer Phipps who designed the estate to resemble his wife’s family home in Sussex, England • When construction began, John and Margarita were merely engaged and John had promised his British fiancée​ that he would build her a home that resembled her family estate in Battle Abbey, a historic Benedictine abbey ruin in Sussex. Three years, a wedding, and three children later, the estate was ready for John and the family to move in • Designed by English architect George A. Crawley, Old Westbury Gardens is a Charles II-style mansion nestled among gardens, landscaped grounds, woods, and lakes. The 23 room mansion, known as Westbury House, is furnished in antiques and original art from the family’s collection. Most famously, the painting “Mrs. Henry Phipps and Her Grandson Winston Guest” by painter John Singer Sargent hangs in the dining room. The child in the painting was the godson of Winston Churchill • Old Westbury was converted into a museum in 1959. Along with its extensive art and antique collection, the estate has also played host to Hollywood serving as the set location for many classic films including Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest”, Scorsese’s “The Age of Innocence”, and the teen drama “Cruel Intentions”. The estate was also the inspiration for the Buchanan mansion in the 2013 adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” • Today, the estate continues to preserve and interpret the architecture and gardens of the 20th century American country estate – visitors can explore its grounds and enjoy museum tours, classic car shows, lectures, horticultural classes, and even Scottish Games • Know more?

________________________ The Borough Welsh Chapel​ | London, England | c. 1870 • Although its present building was constructed in 1870, The Borough Welsh Congregational Chapel has a history that dates back to 1774. Located in London’s Southwark district known as “The Borough”, it is the mother chapel of the Welsh Congregational Church in London and holds bilingual services in both English and Welsh. In Welsh, its name translates to Capel-y-Boro • The Chapel’s story begins when Edward Jones, an exhorter/initial-level minister, began holding Welsh-language services on a London side street. Along with his religious aspirations, Jones was a pub owner and a spirit-merchant whose nickname was Ginshop Jones. Eventually, the services grew in size and Jones went on to establish a Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Chapel London’s Clerkenwell district • As an extension of the Wilderness Row congregation, a Welsh service began at nearby Gravel Lane. The two congregations soon split when Gravel Lane became completely Congregational and Wilderness Row remained Methodist. This separation established the origins of The Borough Welsh Chapel. In 1806, a small chapel for the Gravel Lane congregation was built on Little Guildford Street in Southwark • Over half a century later, the new chapel was built. Samuel Morley, a famous Congregationalist, laid the foundation stone and the new Chapel was opened in 1872. The new Chapel is a well preserved example of a Welsh chapel that might be seen in the region of Wales known as the Valleys • Today, the Chapel continues to hold bilingual services on almost every Sunday of the month. Members share a strong commitment to both the local and global community, and are involved in fundraising efforts for a wide range of charities • Know more?
