Glencairn Castle & Cathedral, Gardens, And College Area

2 hours, 5-6 miles, Glencairn Castle & Cathedral, Bryn Athyn College, and the neighborhood. The Castle which is an antiquities museum and the Cathedral are incredible buildings. This time of year they also have beautiful gardens. We'll walk the grounds, maybe take a tour if available. The schedule seems to anything but regular of late. Then we'll head next door to the college and the really cool neighborhood beyond. We may hike some trails in the Pennypark ERT. More about the area. Glencairn Castle (Museum) is one of the 100 largest houses in the country. #73 on the Wikipedia list. It's the former home of Pitcairn family who spared no expense and detail building it. In 1979 after the death of Margaret Pitcairn the castle became an antiquities museum: it makes the Cloisters in NYC look 2nd rate. Right next door is Glencairn Cathedral which is another incredible structure. We'll walk the grounds and if possible stick our heads inside for a minute. Free tours are sometimes available.
