Our client calls the work Spectacular!
Originally a 200 acre summer escape developed by prominent Philadelphia merchant Anthony Morris in 1796, The Highlands today is a 44 acre estate that features a late 18th century Georgian mansion and two-acre formal garden.
The property was greatly enhance by the Schaeff family in the 19th century before falling into disrepair in the early 20th. Miss Caroline Sinkler restored to its former elegance and prominence as an historical treasure beginning in 1917. Miss Sinkler’s niece, Emily Sinkler Roosevelt, purchased the property in 1941 and in 1957 transferred it to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been managed by The Highlands Historical Society since 1975.
