Brookmead Farms


Beginnings [1]

Brookmead Farms, formerly a 156-acre dairy farm on Route 363 in Tredyffrin Township between Valley Forge and New Centerville, was opened for residential development in 1956 when Edward Law moved to Chester Springs. Harry Doyle was the first of many developers of the tract. Norman Slott and Clarence S. Staats, Jr., were two others. Known during the American Revolution as the quarters of the Polish cavalry officer, Casimir Pulaski, the farm was given the name of Brookmead Farm by Francis R. Wood, a wealthy lawyer from Lower Merion Township who purchased it in 1898. In addition to more than 150 houses, a church and a school were built on the tract.

Today

This neighborhood of detached single family homes was built ca. 1955-1963. Interior living space ranges from approximately 1,800-3,000 sq. ft. with a median of approximately 2,400 sq. ft.
