The heavily rusted gate and lock at Lynnewood Hall, an abandoned 110-room neoclassical revival mansion in Elkins Park, (suburb of Philadelphia) Pennsylvania.
The huge building that once welcomed presidents and the wealthiest and most aristocratic of guests is now an elegant crumbling ruin.

Lynnewood Hall is said to be the largest surviving Gilded Age mansion in the Philadelphia area. It is built from Indiana limestone and was famous for its large art gallery. The home's collection was on public display at Lynnewood Hall from 1915 to 1940 when the collection of more than 2,000 sculptures, paintings, decorative art, and porcelains were donated to the National Gallery of Art.
The home also had a ballroom, swimming pool, wine cellars and its own electrical power plant.
