High Gate Carriage House

-A A +A
1909–1910, Horace Trumbauer. 1991, Paul D. Marshall and Associates. Adjacent to High Gate (east corner of the intersection of Walnut Ave. and 9th St.)
  • High Gate Carriage House (Harold Phelps)

Employing the same materials and basic design as the mansion, this large, H-shaped combination carriage house and servants' quarters is typical of service buildings attached to houses of High Gate's magnitude. It was used as a nursing home for a number of years and was threatened with demolition in 1988. When it became known that a fast-food franchise planned to occupy its site, interest in its preservation galvanized. The Friends of High Gate, Inc., now own the building and use it for exhibitions and receptions.
