description

Summary

Significance: Glencairn, constructed in the Romanesque style, reflects the religious, civic, business, and family ideas of Raymond Pitcairn and his interest in the medieval arts and crafts. It was the second architectural structure that Raymond designed without a formal course in architecture and by a building process unfamiliar to modern times.
Survey number: HABS PA-6036
