The Wyncote Historic District is located in the heart of Cheltenham Township along Greenwood Avenue and extending between Washington Lane to the East and Rices Mill Road to the West. The winding, tree-lined roadways and century old homes make it arguably one of the most beautiful residential communities in the area.
Because residents want to maintain this historic beauty; certain repairs, maintenance, and outside appearances of homes in Wyncote are closely reviewed by a Township/Resident board entitled a Board of Historical and Architectural Review or BHAR. Residents and property owners must seek the approval of the Wyncote BHAR prior to being granted building permits in Wyncote.
