The census designated place of Devon-Berwyn is located on Philadelphia’s iconic Main Line, a string of affluent suburbs along Septa’s R5 railroad line. While technically the area is called Devon-Berwyn, and shares the same zip code, township, county and school district, residents generally consider Devon and Berwyn to be two separate towns. Both towns also have a train stop on the Septa R5.
Devon & Berwyn Location
Located entirely within Easttown Township in Chester County, students attend the Easttown Tredyffrin School District. Located towards the end of the Main Line, Devon-Berwyn has more land, less clutter and a more rural feel than communities closer to Philadelphia. Despite its distance, it is still a very reasonable commute to Philadelphia, particularly by train.
The Devon section of the area is most known for the Devon Preparatory School and the Devon Horse Show.
Berwyn received its name in 1877 when a Welsh settler proposed the name after Berwyn Hills, which overlooked the Valley of the Dee River in Merionethshire, Wales. It is perhaps best known for the Jenkins Arboretum, a 46 acre non-profit arboretum open 365 days a year to the public from 8am to sunset and has free admission. It is a wonderful place to learn about nature or to spend a day with your family if you are interested in either Berwyn real estate or Devon real estate.
