Have you ever noticed that old historic building next to the Newtown Square Firehouse?
That building once belonged to Horace Milton Lewis, a descendent of William Lewis, one of the founders of Newtown Square and the Newtown Square Friends Meeting. William Lewis came to Pennsylvania from Wales in 1686, according to findagrave.com.
Horace opened a general store with his brother Hunter around the turn of the century (1900). The store was located at the corner of West Chester Pike and Rt. 252 called H.M. Lewis and Brother.
Lewis was one of the founders of the Newtown Square Fire Co. along with his father Dillwyn and a life-long member of the Newtown Square Meeting. He served as treasurer of the meeting and keeper of the graveyard records for many years.
