Living in Bala Cynwyd, PA

Bala Cynwyd was first settled in 1682 by Welsh colonists. The name is derived from the towns Bala and Cynwyd in northern Wales, a region many of the original settlers came from. When these colonists came to the area, they brought with them their strong work ethic, desire for an involved community and Quaker religion. These factors would influence and shape the community they built.

The town remained virtually unchanged by the 1880s. The community still lacked many modern amenities and was considered rural, despite its close proximity to Philadelphia. The community learned to rely on itself for the things it needed, especially since residents were cut off from the city each winter by the snow.

When the Pennsylvania Railroad finally built stations connecting Bala Cynwyd to the surrounding communities, the town began to move into the future. It has progressed to become a desirable community in Lower Merion Township, and as of the 2010 census, it was home to 9,360 residents.
