Originally part of Springfield Township, Swarthmore slowly grew its own identity after the founding of its namesake, Swarthmore College. Passenger service to Philadelphia was established here in the 1880s, making it a desirable commuter suburb, which still proves true today. This factor, coupled with an outstanding school district, make Swarthmore a sought after town for families. Lined with pedestrian-friendly streets, many residents enjoy easy access to Swarthmore College’s campus and arboretum, as well as its lively town center filled with amenities such as the Swarthmore Co-op, train station, public library, restaurants and one-of-a-kind stores. The borough is known for its mixture of substantially-sized late Victorian and early 20th century revival homes. Graceful gardens and mature trees, many over a century old, line the borough’s streets.
