Halftone reproduction of photograph showing the mansion house with a historic plaque mounted on its facade. The house was built in 1800 by Edward W. Heston, a Revolutionary patriot who founded the village of Hestonville along the Lancaster Pike.

The mansion was demolished in 1901 to make way for a railroad.
