Industrialist James Crosby Brown of the Pennsylvania Railroad built a 185-acre estate that upon his death was divided into non-divisible (deed-restricted) lots of three to seventeen acres, an early act of (partial) preservation that set an important precedent for future acts by both individuals and the township. The Lower Merion Conservancy plays a significant role in protecting the local heritage and maintains its office in Gladwyne's Rolling Hill Park.
