On it is Woodburn, a mansion that was once the home of Thomas A. Scott, former president of the Pennsylvania Railroad and assistant secretary of war to Abraham Lincoln, according to Lindy Wardell, former president of the Darby Borough Historical and Preservation Society and another champion for the propertys preservation .
They could easily attack the train, Wardell told the Daily Times in 2009, just before Lincolns 200th birthday. (Scott) advised the general on how to use the railroad for modern warfare, how to move troops and horses and supplies faster than the South could, said Wardell.

Wardell, president of the Darby Borough Historical Society, stumbled across the cemetery 10 years ago.
It was overgrown and hidden in a plot of woods. "I saw all these stones in the woods, and I wandered in to see what they were," Wardell said. "I found one from 1808 and 1809, and I got excited." Wardell discovered that approximately 45 Lincolns – including the President's cousin – are buried in the cemetery. "It was exciting because it was about that time we realized we did have a mission," she said. "We've identified 876 burials without records. We've had to do our own research." Wardell, Lincoln and a small group of volunteers have spent 10 years now pulling out more than 200 trees, trimming weeds and repairing vandalized tombstones. Wardell thinks the volunteers could fix it all with about $30,000 in donations. She says they're leaving a legacy not just for the people buried in the cemetery – but for generations who might come to look at the history. "I feel enriched by being able to know this – and I do get in to it," she said.
