History of Marworth

Marworth served from 1931 to 1981 as the family estate for three generations of the Scranton family. The estate name is derived from the first names of Margery and Worthington Scranton, parents of former Pennsylvania Governor William Scranton.

The original 22,000-sq.-ft. building was expanded to better serve the individuals seeking recovery from drug or alcohol addiction.
