Fleeing the Nazis and penniless, Baron Georg von Trapp, Baroness Maria, their two sons and seven daughters (ages 7 to 27) lived at 252 Merion Road between 1938 and 1944. The house was loaned to them by Henry S. Drinker, Jr., a Merion lawyer, music patron and an authority on Bach. The von Trapps stayed in Merion Station long enough to regain their financial stability and then moved to Vermont and bought a farm.
