Radnor Township, PA

Radnor (community and township) takes its name from Radnorshire, Wales, where the Welsh Quakers who settled the area in 1682 hailed from. As they did throughout the rest of the Welsh Tract, they soon built a meetinghouse; they were joined not long afterward by Anglicans from the same county who established their own church once they got a missionary. (That church gives its name to the community to Radnor’s east, St. Davids.)

Radnor Township is the most affluent community in Delaware County, and the Main Line communities within it are a big reason why. Radnor is one of those. Large, spacious homes and estates abound in Radnor, a mostly residential community bracketed by two commercial centers.

Great homes, great schools, and a convenient location make Radnor a great place to live. (Just ask Tracy Lloyd, the protagonist of “The Philadelphia Story.” Her character was based on Radnor resident Helen Hope Montgomery Scott.) Along with its neighboring communities, it helps make Radnor Township “The Best Place to Live, Work, Visit and Do Business on the Main Line.”
