About Rosemont

Rosemont is an affluent suburb located on Philadelphia’s Main Line. While an actual town, it shares a zip code with the larger community of Bryn Mawr and is often referred to as part of the geographical area of Bryn Mawr.

Located between Villanova and Bryn Mawr it is perhaps best known for the very fine Rosemont College, a formerly all girls liberal arts institution that was founded in 1921. Also located in Rosemont is the Anges Irwin School, a non-sectarian, all-girls day schools for grades pre-kindergarten to 12. It was founded by Miss Agnes Irwin, the great-great-granddaughter of Benjamin Franklin in 1869.

As it is often thought of as Bryn Mawr, it shares most of the characteristics with its adjacent community. In typical Main Line fashion it boasts excellent schools, low crime, sky high property values and a high median income.

Just like Villanova, Rosemont is located in both Delaware and Montgomery, falling in both Radnor and Montgomery Township. The community of Garret Hill is located in the Radnor Township section of Rosemont. Rosemont has its own train station of the same name as well as a stop on the 100 High Speed Line. Rosemont was also apparently used as the model for the town called Pine Valley, PA on the daytime soap opera All My Children.
