Originally owned by William Penn, modern day Media was

purchased by a Quaker man by the name of Thomas Minshall

in 1682.  In 1789 Media and the rest of Delaware County came

to be when Chester County was divided in 2 by the Providence

Great Road.  Though the area remained largely rural until 1850

when it was incorporated, Minshall and a few others called it

their home.


The 480 acres of Media’s borders haven’t changed since that

day, and are currently home to a wealth of history and culture. 

John J arboretum founded by decedents of Minshall is home to over 1000 different trees/shrubs, 20 original still stands today.  The Media Theater originally Vaudeville stands now as the Media Center for the Performing Arts.

In the past  twenty- five years, Media has seen a transformation in the types of businesses active in the town. The community has also seen revitalization and growth as many banks, investment firms, service businesses and corporations have followed suit, preferring the small-town atmosphere that has given Media its name as “Everybody’s Hometown”.
