Photographic History.


Woodmont was built in 1892 at an estimated cost of $1,OOO,OOO by the Honorable Alan Wood, Jr.,
founder of the Alan Wood Steel Co. of Conshohocken.
William L. Price was the architect.  



In 1882 FATHER DIVINE and PENINNAH were married.   In 1892 the construction of Woodmont was completed by Alan Wood Jr., a devoted Shaker.  It seemed strange that a Shaker would build such an elaboate Estate but it was the Spirit of FATHER DIVINE working through him to establish what would become a corner stone of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.  FATHER had prepared for Himself and His Bride a place suitable for the continuation of His Universal Work and Mission for it was to become The Mount of the House of the LORD.   The following are photographs taken after the original construction was completed with the exception of one, the 1201 Woodmont Road Gate House which had been built many years previously.  Thank YOU, FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE.
