Woodcrest is a historic mansion located on the campus of Cabrini College in Radnor Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1901, with major alterations designed by Horace Trumbauer and completed in 1907, with additional modifications executed in 1914. It is a three-story, 51 room, 47,000 square feet mansion in the Elizabethan Tudor Revival style. It was once part of a 238 acre estate, 112 acres of which is Cabrini College. Dr. John T. Dorrance, inventor of the process for condensed soup and president of the Campbell Soup Company, sold to the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1953. Cabrini College opened in September 1957, and Woodcrest served as its first home.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.[1]
