Radnor Hunt Club
Radnor Hunt is the oldest continuous fox-hunting club in the United States, recognized by the Masters of Foxhounds Association America.
Radnor Hunt was founded in 1883 in Pennsylvania. A property was purchased on the corner of Darby-Paoli and Roberts Roads in Newtown Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, and it became the club headquarters.
From its early days, it attracted members of prominent families from Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Main Line, also known as "Old Philadelphians". For example, Alexander Cassatt (1839–1906), the seventh president of the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR), was a founding member. The first President was James Rawle of the J. G. Brill Company, and the first Master of Foxhounds was Horace B. Montgomery. Later, Samuel D. Riddle (1861–1951) joined the club.
In 1931, architect Arthur Ingersoll Meigs (1882-1956), who was a member of the hunt, restored the Gallagher Farm on Boot Road (now Providence Road) in White Horse, Pennsylvania as well as new stables and kennels. It became the new club headquarters.
