The Ragged Edge was built in 1900 - 1901 for Col. Moorhead Kennedy as the Kennedy's summer home that you visited by horse and buggy. Colonel Kennedy had a rail spur brought to the opposite side of the creek from the house. A small depot was built there and a walking bridge and stone path brought guest across the creek and to the rear of the home. The rail bed and 2 iron bridges with the rails removed are still there. The mill work was done by a Philadelphia company. An addition in 1913 made the Ragged Edge the largest residence in Franklin County. The home was used to entertain executives from railroads, the Governors of Pennsylvania and Maryland, US Senators, bankers from New York and Philadelphia, heads of corporations who the railroad had dealings with, PA Supreme Court Justices, Corporate Attorneys, University Presidents, and of course prominent clergymen. There were evening concerts and dances and there are still a few people around who remember them. The Kennedy’s used Ragged Edge as a farm and by some accounts there were as many as 1,000 acres.
