Cairnwood Estate

Cairnwood Estate is a non-profit organization owned by the Academy of the New Church. Proceeds go toward Cairnwood’s operations, public programs, educational uses and restoration efforts.

The estate is located within the Bryn Athyn Historic District and surrounded by some of the most remarkable architecture in the Philadelphia Area including the Bryn Athyn Cathedral and Glencairn Museum.

The mission of Cairnwood Estate, as a National Historic Landmark and independent member of the Academy of the New Church organization, is to restore, preserve and manage the home of John and Gertrude Pitcairn as an educational, cultural and hospitality center serving the local and national community.
