Whitemarsh Woods is a residential neighborhood located on Germantown Pike in the Lafayette Hill section of the Freedom Valley. Until recently, this property was undeveloped. Today, about one-third of the land that became Whitemarsh Woods remains woodlands and open space, as seen in the top photograph of Arbour Circle. The maps below show the transition of the property into a housing development.
