ARDMORE: A VIBRANT PHILADELPHIA SUBURB
Ardmore is a two-square mile community that combines the best of residential and urban qualities. Hence it is a highly sought-after place to live.
CHARMING MAIN STREET
Stroll past historic buildings and choose from a wonderful array of eclectic restaurants. In addition, visit the many family-owned businesses and shops. Although the majority of the town’s restaurants and shops are on Lancaster Avenue, Suburban Square features many new shops and restaurants. For example, the Ardmore Farmer’s Market and Trader Joe's.
Given the name “Ardmore” by the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1873, this town became a transportation hub on the Main Line. Suburban Square, which opened in 1928, was one of the first shopping centers in the United States and cemented Ardmore as a retail hub. Furthermore, it was the first suburban location of Strawbridge & Clothier.
Ardmore is accessible by both Amtrak and SEPTA regional rail, as well as bus services to Center City Philadelphia.
This community, which spans two counties/townships, is well served by two excellent school districts: Lower Merion and Haverford Township. It is also close to several private schools, academies, colleges and universities in the surrounding communities.
