About

This is a 21,875 square-foot vacation home for Catholic priests. It was bought by the Philadelphia Archdiocese in 1963 for $100,000. The late Cardinal Krol spent a lot of time here. The Archdiocese needs money badly, so it is being sold, which could probably raise $5 million. Real estate experts believe it will be bought by investors, and razed and divided into single lots. (All information from an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, 6/27/12, at A1.)
