Woodcrest Estate History
The Cook and the Coachman
Of Woodcrest Estate,
Radnor, PA, 1903
As well as stalls for horses, the stable building contained coachmen's and grooms' quarters, other servants' apartments, and a carriage house. the large round towers served as the stable's ventilation shafts.
This original stable was roughly u-shaped and surrounded a courtyard, closed in by a wall on the side toward the mansion. The wall was removed and in 1989 the courtyard was enclosed to form an atrium. Now Grace Hall, it houses offices and meeting rooms.
Both views of the stable are of the side facing the mansion.
