Friends of Woodburne
In 1906, Edgar T. Scott, Senior, son of Pennsyvania RR President Thomas A. Scott, commissioned
noted archtiect Horace Trumbuer to build a magnificent mansion on the property known at various
times as the Heights of Darby, Woodbourne, Woodburne, and later as the Scott Estate, Villa St.
Theresa, and Little Flower. Now a Delaware County Park the Friends of Woodburne was formed to
help the County preserve and utilize this remarkable building. Please join us

The Friends of Woodburne is a newly formed group dedicated to helping Delaware County find an
appropriate and feasible adaptive re-use for the Mansion designed by Horace Trumbauer in 1906
One of the newest jewels in Delaware County's crown
of parks is the land currently being called Little Flower
Park, and the mansion designed in 1906 by Horace
Trumbauer sometimes called Woodburne on
Springfield Road in Darby. A Friends of
Woodburne group has been started and your
participation is cordially invited.
