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.
