Main Line Philadelphia Real Estate
Main Line Philadelphia refers to a series of communities on the western side of the city. Pennsylvania Quakers, who purchased the land from William Penn, originally settled the area. The Pennsylvania Railroad laid down its Main Line there in the 19th century, taking advantage of the area’s scenic beauty, and positioning stops approximately two minutes apart.Today, the area retains the name Main Line, and offers homes for sale within a tranquil and scenic part of the state.

- Narberth Borough
- Radnor Township
- Tredyffrin Township
- Easttown Township
