The house, built in 1900 was Tudor in style. A long grass path led to a sunken garden with a fountain, which was copied from the Piazza Farnese in Rome. The house was demolished and the property was developed ca. 1950.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Milton B. Medary (architect and landscape architect, 1900); H. Radlciffe Roberts (landscape architect); G. Brinton Roberts (former owner, 1900-1946); Penn Park Apartments (former owner, 1946-ca. 1950); and Germantown Savings Bank (ca. 1950-present).
