What Is The Main Line?

The Main Line is a group of suburbs in the Philadelphia metro area located west of the city in Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester Counties. These suburbs are called the Main Line because they sprang up along the route of the historic Pennsylvania Railroad, which connected the towns. Residents of Main Line towns live a very high quality of life, as these are some of the wealthiest communities in the country. Many of the sprawling mansions and large homes that historically characterized the Main Line region still exist today, and are a lovely part of the Main Line landscape.

Tips for staying safe on social networks

Unfortunately they're also a great way for cyber criminals to find out information about you.

Crown molding is a great way to beautify an ordinary looking home into one that exudes class and style. Crown moldings are typically decorative strips made up of wood, plastic, or fiberboard. These are introduced to any room decor in an effort to camouflage the existing flaws and ugly blotches on the walls or ceilings.

Crown molding ideas can be retraced to the Roman and Grecian culture where it became vastly popular. Wooden crown molding gained popularity later when craftsmen mastered the art of cutti ...
