Havertown is a residential suburban unincorporated community in
Haverford Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, United States,
approximately 9 miles west of the center of Philadelphia. Haveford
Township was founded in 1833.
The transformation of Haverford Township from an agrarian spread of
farms and mills began just after the turn of the 20th century. The
railroads bought acres of land west of Cobb's Creek for their planned
developments. Rail lines ran from 69th Street in Upper Darby outward
to Ardmore, West Chester and Norristown. Along the rail lines the railroad built the first planned suburban communities Llanerch, 1897 and the most fully developed, Brookline, 1909. While Beechwood, Oakmont and Manoa date from the same period the major housing tracts do not appear until after World War II along with the development of Chatham Park. These communities are now included under the fictitious postal address "Havertown." The first Welsh settlers called this area "Harford." Several golf courses were developed in Haverford.
