Located on the Main Line within Lower Merion and Haverford Townships, Ardmore embodies a lush, small-town feel just minutes from Philadelphia.
Originally named Athensville, the town changed its name in 1853 when the railroad station in the center of town was renamed by the Pennsylvania Railroad. Picturesque Ardmore was developed as a result, and became a popular host for wealthy families in the city to build their country home in the nineteenth century. While today it is considered far from “the country”, the town still enjoys an affluent, historic feel with plenty of tree-lined streets and beautiful stone mansions.

Ardmore Farmers Market is located nearby and is open seven days a week to provide the town’s residents with fresh, local, and organic ingredients. The Ardmore locals are passionate about the continued success of the place they call home—in fact, The Ardmore Initiative is a business district authority responsible for all of the improvements of downtown Ardmore.
