Cairnwood is the former home of John and Gertrude Pitcairn. As the founder of Pittsburgh Plate Glass and through longstanding connections with the Pennsylvania Railroad, John Pitcairn's fortune allowed him to purchase the land which is now Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania, and build this magnificent home. The house was designed by the famed Carrere and Hastings firm. The grounds around the house were designed by Olmstead, Olmstead and Eliot. The original grounds consisted of the house, a carriage house, stables, gardens and greenhouses, and a host of buildings for the staff and servants.
