Carriage House

Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020, United States

Created By: Glen Foerd on the Delaware


Built in 1898, the carriage house still has many of the features needed for horse-drawn carriages and related tack. Its stalls, feed bins, and manual elevator remain. Shortly after it was built, the structure also served as a garage and a storage space. Today it houses the boat shop for Glen Foerd’s partners, Philadelphia Waterborne. Philadelphia Waterborne brings structured boat-building programs directly to local high schools and middle schools. This engaged learning program is designed to demonstrate the crucial importance of the arts in supporting successful student educational outcomes.

Just northeast of the carriage house, you’ll see what remains of two grass tennis courts, bordered by brick walls and pillars. These courts provided year round entertainment. In the winter months, the Foerderers would flood them for ice skating.
