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
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”.
