Radon is a radioactive gas that results from the natural breakdown of uranium found in trace amounts in soil, rock, and water. Radon is the main source of our exposure to all radiation. The US Surgeon General and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have determined that radon is second only to smoking as a leading cause of lung cancer. Testing for Radon is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon.
The Wyncote Historic District has a number of restored Victorian-era homes. The All Hallows Church (constructed 1896-1897) was designed by a firm founded by Philadelphia architect Frank Furness (Furness, Evans, and Company). Wyncote also has a number of classical Philadelphia stone colonial revival homes; notable among them is “Beechwood” designed in the school of Brognard Okie, the architect responsible for the reconstruction of “Pennsbury Manor” on the upper Delaware River, and “Appleford” in Villanova, Pa.
