Welcome to Jenkintown, PA!
Charming, convenient, and friendly! This little town in southern Montgomery County offers walkability, quaint homes, and a petite school district. Plus, the borough is only ten miles north of Center City and conveniently located near the towns of Abington, Glenside, and Cheltenham. Jenkintown spans just 0.6 square miles and is home to approximately 4400 residents.
Jenkintown Quick Facts
Jenkintown enjoys a rich history dating back to its settlement in 1697. The borough was named after William Jenkins, a pioneer settler, and became officially incorporated in 1874.

The friendly borough is one of the only in the area to host a “Newcomers Club” intended to help new residents get acquainted. Volunteers coordinate and organize these fun events, and are an excellent way for residents (old and new!) to meet their neighbors.

The borough is governed by a city-manager form of government with a mayor and a 12-member borough council.

Jenkintown School District serves the borough, and is one of the smallest school districts in the region! The district serves just 600 students, and its size allows for a more individualized education and an impressive student-to-teacher ratio (11:1).
What To Do in Jenkintown
While Jenkintown is largely a residential borough, there are plenty of award-winning restaurants and shops in the downtown area! The intersection of Old York Rd (Rt 611) and West Avenue is home to eateries including Leila’s Bistro, West Avenue Grille and Drake’s Tavern. Boutiques include La Bella Donna Bridal and Formal, Jenkintown Running, and My Jewel Shop.

The borough is always planning fun and family-friendly events, organized by the Jenkintown Recreational Board. The volunteer group has hosted events including a chili cook off, summer music series, and holiday tree lighting ceremony.
Real Estate in Jenkintown
Homes in the borough range considerably in price. Affordable townhomes under $200,000 are available, as well as sprawling stone manors over $800,000. Many homes in Jenkintown are unique, charming, and quaint. It’s not uncommon to find a home with exposed beams, a wrap-around front porch, or Victorian-style details! Due to the relatively small size of the school district, there are typically only a handful of homes for sale and unsurprisingly, they tend to sell quickly.

Jenkintown is a desirable place to live, as it offers easy access to Center City and many of the homes in the borough are in walking distance to all that the town has to offer. Downtown Jenkintown offers award-winning restaurants, art studios, fitness studios, and parks!
