If you would like to take a stroll through the past, the Richard Wall House Museum in Elkins Park offers a unique glimpse into Cheltenham Township's history. The museum is situated in the Township's 13.2-acre Wall Park, located at Church Road and Wall Park Drive, just 1/10 mile west of Old York Road in Elkins Park. Dated 1682 and listed on state and national historic registers, the house museum features four floors of exhibits, a springhouse, a smoke house and a carriage house. The museum?s extraordinary displays include a Roaring 20s room, an extensive 19th century tool collection, fashion displays, a Colonial bedroom and kitchen, a military exhibit, and a nursery with a five-foot electrified dollhouse.
