Victoria Donohoe was a lifelong resident of 34 Narbrook Park, the home her family owned for 95 years, from 1923 until 2018. Vicky researched and wrote the nomination (PDF) that resulted in Narbrook Park being listed as an Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. She drafted the Bert Bell state historic marker on Haverford Ave. She was the Philadelphia Inquirer art and architecture critic for over 50 years, wrote numerous articles and essays on the history of Narberth and left a huge collection of paintings, drawings, papers and photographs.
