Overview of Exton

Exton, PA, is a town located in Chester County. In its early days, the town was an important transportation center at the intersection of two trade routes.

This neighborhood is close to Philadelphia and is known as a major retail and shopping center for consumer goods. Although the area is small, it boasts several malls and other retail establishments. If you're looking for a fun, close-knit community with a strong educational system, Exton is a great place to rent.

In the late 1800's, the center of town was at the intersection of Lancaster Road and Pottstown Pike. Lancaster Road was a major route to and from Philadelphia while Pottstown Pike lead to nearby Pottstown. The traffic from travelers and pioneers resulted in the development of a town at the intersection of these thoroughfares. In the late 1940s, the Newcomen Society of the United States built their headquarters in the heart of town. The neighborhood boasted a print shop, library, museum and a church. Although the Newcomen Society has since left the area, their historic building still remains.

Today, Exton has a population of approximately 4,700. In addition as being a center of retail activity, the neighborhood is known for its commitment to education, creativity and recreation.
