What do you know about Old Forge Crossing?

What do you know about Old Forge Crossing? Today this well maintained 508 unit condominium plus one cottage complex in Devon on just over 40 acres is well known as a great place to live, well located for access to center city Philadelphia and just minutes away from major restaurants and shopping centers along the Main Line and King of Prussia Mall. As many businesses open offices in the suburbs and out of center city, Old Forge crossing is well located with easy access to Route 202 both North and South.

Old Forge Crossing was originally part of the land grant given by King Charles II in 1681 to cover a debt of sixteen thousand pounds sterling owed originally to Penn's father. He soon set up two offices selling parcels of land and sent his cousin William Markham over to Pennsylvania to manage as his deputy.

A lot more history can be read about on the T/E Historical Society Website where there is an excellent essay by Dick Henkels

This covers a wonderful description of the main house when it was for sale back in 1918 and explains how the whole development was built as a test case by the developer of Chesterbrook Richard Fox of Jenkintown. He then sold the development to Prudential who ran it as  rental apartments before selling it as condos in 1981 when the condominium association was formed in May.
