The substantial history of Chestnut Hill dates back over 325 years. With rich traditions and world class architecture, we strive to preserve the past through the renovations and maintenance of our properties.

1870’s - 1920’s

The building at 101 Bethlehem Pike was built around 1870 in the Second Empire style. By 1879, harness maker John McLeod had moved into the building, as shown in this photograph made from one of his trade cards. The local would have been ideal to take advantage of horse-drawn carriages transporting passengers to and from the Chestnut Hill Depot of the former Reading Railroad, located across the street.

1930’s - 1960’s

This storefront at 8512-8516 Germantown Avenue was built in 1934 for the Blumenthal and Hayman market. It remained unchanged until 1956, when the façade was altered by Dorothy Bullitt’s dress shop. Since then, the façade remains largely unchanged.

1970’s- 1990’s

The arrival of the holidays has always been a cause for celebration in Chestnut Hill. Shown here is the 1970 Christmas parade heading down the 8400 block of Germantown Avenue, with a car sporting a “Jones Oldsmobile” banner leading the way.


By far our biggest project was the construction of 8200 Germantown Ave in 2014, where you can find The Fresh Market, the new location of Compass Real Estate, as well as prime retail space availability.
