Bryn Mawr is named after an estate near Dolgellau in Wales that belonged to Rowland Ellis. He was a Quaker who emigrated in 1686 to Pennsylvania from Dolgellau to escape religious persecution. Bryn Mawr is in the center of the Main Line, and Rosemont is a small town within it. Downtown Bryn Mawr features a Septa station (where you can often catch an express train downtown, making for a quick commute) and a full walkable downtown featuring everything from stores and restaurants to banks, a library, and Bryn Mawr Hospital. Local favorites include La Colombe coffee, The Grog Grill, and Kelly’s Taproom (both of which are popular with Villanova University students), Bryn Mawr Film Institute, Hope’s Cookies, MOM’s Organic Market, and The Bakery House. Bryn Mawr and Rosemont residents attend four public high schools depending on the location of the house. Houses are located in Lower Merion Township (Montgomery County), Haverford Township (Delaware County), or Radnor Township (Delaware County.) The area is also home to many of the area’s top-rated private schools.
