Radnor township was established in 1682 and was included in the Welsh Tract. It was named after Radnorshire, Whales. During the late twentieth century, stone monuments were placed throughout the community in tribute to the township’s Welsh heritage. Lancaster Pike was the first toll road constructed in the country. It connected Lancaster and Philadelphia and traversed through Radnor Township. Perhaps one of the more famous parts of the Main Line, Radnor is identified in the script as the setting for Philip Barry’s play The Philadelphia Story. Radnor High School is the model for “Grease”, the Director of which, Randal Kleiser, was a member of the Class of 1964, and “Taps” was filmed at Valley Forge Military Academy and College, which is also in Radnor Township. Radnor residents today live within three townships: Radnor Township (Delaware County), Tredyffrin Township (Chester County), and Upper Merion Township (Montgomery County). Students attend Radnor High School, Conestoga High School, or Upper Merion High School. Radnor High School was recently named the best in the state. Situated between Villanova and Wayne, Radnor has its own train station. You’ll find beautiful homes, shopping areas, offices, and local favorite restaurants such as 333 Belrose, Estia, and Pietro’s, as well as direct access to the area’s highways.
