Because of its year-round friendly weather, any time is a good time to visit Broomall and it serves as a beautiful historic suburb for those who are visiting Philadelphia, PA. One of the most significant landmark and iconic place in Broomall is the former home of Thomas Massey which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The stone and brick colonial home, located near Lawrence Road, used to be a wooden house built by Thomas Massey which was later torn down by his son. He then proceeded to build a brick and stone home on site. It was one of the earliest homes of its kind in Broomall and was donated to Marple Township in 1964 so that the home could be restored and preserved, instead of being destructed for modern homes. The Thomas Massey House is also one of the oldest English Quaker home in the state of Pennsylvania. Today, Broomall’s charming and friendly residents are welcoming of visitors, most of whom are traveling either to Philadelphia or Wilmington, DE.
