Beechwood: Suburban Haverford Township

Explore the early 20th Century suburban developments of Penfield, Brookline, and Beechwood that were made possible by the expanded railroad and trolley lines. The tour includes the former site of the short-lived Beechwood Amusement Park that was created by the P&W in 1907 as well as the former home of the Slinky inventor. Take a trip on the train like homebuyers did 100+ years ago to see these leafy suburbs.
