Haverford, bordered to the south by Ardmore and to the north by Bryn Mawr, is at the center of the Main Line. Haverford sits in both Haverford Township in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, and Lower Merion Township in Montgomery County.
Haverford is located along the SEPTA Paoli/Thorndale Line commuter rail system and Norristown High Speed Line connecting to the city center in 20 minutes, and the light rail system connecting to Philadelphia’s 69th Street subway station.
Today, Haverford is most notable for being the site of Haverford College, a private, coeducational liberal arts college. It sits on a beautiful campus in the heart of Haverford, along Lancaster Avenue. The college was founded in 1833 by Quakers and was ranked 11th among all colleges and universities in the 2014 edition of Forbes’ “Top Colleges".
Haverford also hosts the prestigious Haverford School for Boys, a selective private, non-sectarian, all-boys college preparatory day school, which was established in 1884.
Haverford is an exclusive suburban residential community, with a warm and low-key atmosphere. Like many of the Main Line Philadelphia communities, Haverford was initially settled as a summer destination for affluent families escaping Philadelphia’s summer months. With the development of the railroad and automobile, farmland was purchased by families who replaced pastures with luxury homes and manors.
