Ideal Blue Bell Hill location! Lovingly updated 2 1/2 story twin home with 5 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. Thought to be built c. 1880, it was part of the community that grew up around RittenhouseTown, the nation's first papermill and the only papermill operating in North America between 1687 and 1727. All the mills along the Wissahickon Creek were closed down in the mid 1800's, but the community of Blue Bell Hill has been popular ever since and now enjoys proximity to what is now Historic RittenhouseTown, a National Historic Landmark District, to the resources of nearby neighborhoods of Germantown, Mount Airy and Roxborough, as well as the natural sylvan resources of Fairmount Park and the Wissahickon Creek.
