About Gladwyne

Gladwyne, Pennsylvania

 

 

 

 

 

Gladwyne is an affluent suburban community in Montgomery CountyPennsylvaniaUnited States along the historic Philadelphia Main Line. In 2011, Gladwyne was ranked the 7th richest ZIP code in the country in a study by Bloomberg BusinessWeek.The population was 4,050 at the 2000 census. As Gladwyne is neither an incorporated area nor a census-designated place, all data are for the ZIP code 19035, with which the community is coterminous.

There are four churches, a synagogue, a library, two schools, the Gladwyne fire company, the Gladwyne Civic Association, the Stony Lane Swim Club, playgrounds, parks, businesses, and retail shops within the confines of Gladwyne. The historic Guard House Inn is also located within Gladwyne.The village is also home to the Philadelphia Country Club on its periphery, Merion Cricket Club, and to The Courts a private tennis club. Because the town was early to preserve space and has received many donations of land, developers have not subdivided the area into more typical suburban developments, so the area retains a mixture of farm, colonial town, and late 19th/early 20th housing uncharacteristic of other Main Line communities.

Banker James Crosby Brown of Brown Brothers & Co. built a 185-acre (0.75 km2) estate that later was divided into non-divisible (deed-restricted) lots of three to 17 acres (69,000 m2), an early act of (partial) preservation that set an important precedent for future acts by both individuals and the township.The Lower Merion Conservancy plays a significant role in protecting the local heritage and maintains its office in Gladwyne's Rolling Hill Park.

Education

 

 


Public schools

 

 


Children living in Gladwyne attend schools in the Lower Merion School District unless they attend one of the area's many private schools. Lower Merion schools maintain an excellent reputation and its public schools are frequently ranked among the best in the nation, public or private. Both high schools are being replaced as of fall 2008, part of a $350 million township building program. Most other Lower Merion public schools have recently been renovated as well.

 

 

 


Schools

 

 


The Gladwyne Montessori School is a private preschool-to-8th grade school located at 920 Youngsford Road across from the Gladwyne Park. Gladwyne Elementary School, part of the public Lower Merion School District, extends from its entrance on Merion Square Road to its playing fields adjacent to Righter's Mill Road. There are also a number of pre-K and K private schools within Gladwyne. Notable private schools within close proximity, many of them nationally renowned, include all-girls Agnes Irwin School, coeducational Episcopal Academy, all-girls Baldwin School, coeducational Friends Central School, coeducational Haverford Friends School, all-boys Haverford School, coeducational William Penn Charter School and coeducational Shipley School. Parochial schools are also numerous and include several parish-related Catholic elementary schools, Archbishop Carroll High School in Radnor, Barrack Hebrew Academy in Bryn Mawr, all-girls, 9–12 Merion Mercy Academy in Merion, Torah Academy in Wynnewood, and coeducational, K-8 Waldron Mercy Academy, also in Merion

 

 

 

 

History

 

 


Like the rest of the region, Gladwyne, known until 1891 as "Merion Square", originally was settled by Welsh Quakers beginning in 1682. It was given its new name to lessen confusion with the many "Merions" in the area, including the town of Merion, Lower Merion Township, and Upper Merion Township, and in imitation of the Welsh names of adjoining towns, although its new name was meaningless in Welsh. Twenty-four mills operated along Mill Creek through the beginning of the twentieth century, and the major road through residential Gladwyne runs along the banks of the creek. After the American Civil War and following construction of the Pennsylvania Railroad's Main Line west from Center City, wealthy Philadelphians located many of their summer homes there.

The development of the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) in the 1960s and the subsequent development of King of Prussia as a major business center increased Gladwyne's appeal, as it was the Main Line town situated closest to the Expressway and midway between King of Prussia and Center City Philadelphia. The Gladwyne Elementary School was built in 1958 to accommodate the children of these new residents and the Gladwyne FreeLibrary was renovated and expanded as well. Yet the core of the village, built originally at the convergence of Youngsford and Righter's Mill Roads during the latter part of the eighteenth century, remained essentially the same, allowing Gladwyne to retain all of its original historic character and at the same time enjoy the conveniences of modern suburban living, such as a centrally located supermarket with ample parking, pharmacy, tavern, and restaurants.

The Gladwyne Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
