Abandoned Historic Manson Left to Decay

Over the years this property has been known at various times as the Heights of Darby, Woodburne, The Scott Estate, Little Flower, and Villa St Theresa and is located in Darby, Pennsylvania. The land was originally the Bartram family farm which ran all the way to the Darby Creek. It is said that The Great Minquas Path, a fur trading route once passed through the property. Later, there were encampments on the "Heights of Darby" during the British occupation. Before the Civil War, the property was owned by George McHenry, President of the Board of Trade. The land was later sold at Sheriff's sale in April 1862 to Thomas A. Scott who served in Abraham Lincoln's Cabinet. His son, Edgar Scott, commissioned Horace Trumbauer to build the present mansion in 1906. The property was purchased by the Sisters of the Divine Redeemer in the 1930's at which time it was used as a Orphanage, and later a nursing home that closed in 2005, leaving the mansion vacant for the elements to take over.
