An overview of Haverford, PA on Philadelphia's Main Line

Fancy a game of cricket? Haverford is your place.

  • Description

    Haverford is a part of Philadelphia’s Main Line and, accordingly, features the staple characteristics of such–access to Center City Philadelphia via SEPTA rail service, a reputation of affluence and impressive architecture to name a few. The community, which straddles Route 30 (or Lancaster Avenue), contains educational institutions, private sport clubs and golf clubs that date to the 1800s. Paired with these historic organizations is new commercial and residential development. For example, Athertyn at Haverford Reserve offers newer condominium suites. These juxtapositions of old and new, city and suburb help create a unique community that is both rooted in the past and continually moving forward.

    West of Philadelphia proper and split between Lower Merion Township in Montgomery County and Haverford Township in Delaware County, Haverford enjoys a bustling commercial district that branches out of Lancaster Avenue. Find chain stores like Eastern Mountain Sports, Saxby’s Coffee, and Primo Hoagies as well as independently owned businesses. Interested in selling some fine art?
