Originally named “Athensville” in 1853, the community and its railroad station were renamed “Ardmore” in 1873 by the Pennsylvania Railroad, on whose Main Line, west out of Philadelphia, Ardmore sits at Milepost 8.5. Suburban Square, opened in 1928 as one of the earliest shopping centers in the United States, is located adjacent to the Ardmore train station. Today it is a bustling open-air hub featuring workout studios, shops, restaurants, and a farmers’ market. Lower Merion and Harriton are the two high schools in the area, and Lower Merion boasts Kobe Bryant as an alumnus.
