Up until the early 20th Century, over 100 acres of this area of Elkins Park was known as Fountain Farm. Owned by Thomas Thomson, he was the Son of a well-regarded local Quaker family and lived his entire life on the farm. Upon his death in 1908, the lands were completely sub-divided and the farm became Township history. His daughter, Elizabeth Thomson married Herbert Taylor in 1897 and in 1927, hired Heacock & Hokanson to design & construct their home on a 1+ acre parcel that is now 8211 Cedar Road. This classic center hall Colonial has all the hallmarks of quality construction & design. The central entry has a porch with large columns to greet your guests.
