The Whitemarsh area ~ Erdenheim, Plymouth, Broad Ax, Flourtown, Lafayette Hill ~ is an area rich in history, dating back to the 1st European settlements in 1683. The discovery of limestone nearby in 1688 fueled the growth of the area, and in the 1700s the area was known both for its quarries and numerous English Estates. Old Village Master Painters has had the honor to work on a number of fine homes here plus a couple of the 12 local properties on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Highlands Estate in Whitemarsh was first built in 1796, with many additions and modifications made during the 1800s, then a major restoration in the 1920s. Old Village Master Painters has had the pleasure to do both interior and exterior work on the Highlands Mansion, in addition to RRP lead paint removal and restoration of its out-buildings
The Highlands was built in 1796, by Anthony Morris, on 200 acres in Whitemarsh as a summer escape from the yellow fever that ravaged Philadelphia in the 1790's. The estate changed hands several times, the Schaeff family made many additions and modifications during the tenure here from 1813-1917. Miss Caroline Sinkler then purchased and restored the property. Her niece donated the property to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1957. It has been managed by The Highlands Historical Society since 1975.
