The original Bryn Mawr Station was designed by Joseph M. Wilson and built in 1869 by the Pennsylvania Railroad. It was demolished in 1963, and replaced by a mid-20th Century mock-colonial style structure. The former freight house on the south side of the tracks, which dates back to 1870, is currently a local restaurant. [1]
