City Facts For Haverford, PA
Primarily an agriculture township, Haverford was officially established by Welch Quaker families in 1682, by deed of William Penn. The landscape was consistently dotted by mills of every sort; grist, saw and powder mills were Haverford’s economical mainstay for well over 120 years.
One of the original historical structures of the township is Haverford College, still a Quaker Friends educational community sitting on 225 acres of pristine land. The area contains five elementary schools, one of which is the educationally acclaimed Chatham Park Elementary, the Haverford Middle School and the town’s separate Haverford High School.
The 20th Century brought with it several well-to-do families interested in the purchase of large acreages of farmland to realize their dreams of immense, uniquely-styled estate homes and property. From this period on, Haverford, PA has continued to define itself as a residential township. Even the 1710 cabin of one of the original Old Haverford Township settler families is still standing and open for tours, protected by this unique community’s very own Historic Society.
