Willistown Township: An Excellent Pennsylvania Community

Located in Chester County, PA, Willistown Township, known for horse farms and prodigious homes, is a quaint and charming community of just under 11,000 residents.

Estate-style homes on large capacious lots offer residents the privacy they seek without having to sacrifice a sense of community and neighborhood.

Situated just south of West Lancaster Avenue and east of the Waynesborough Country Club, Willistown surrounds Malvern. Malvern Borough rests on Willistown's northern end.  

A Brief History of This Pennsylvania Borough

Willistown Township was originally part of a 50,000 acre Welsh Tract surveyed for William Penn in 1684. The first roads in Willstown were Native American trials. Three major roads - Goshen, Sugartown, and Boot - were originally nothing more than cowpaths.

Several places in Willstown have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. They are:

  • Bartram's Covered Bridge
  • Garrett Farmstead
  • Okehocking Historic District
  • Sugartown Historic District
  • White Horse Historic District

Modern Day Willistown

With deep agricultural roots, the community still has a pastoral sense, but it is now very much a bustling modern day city. With the Main Line available to commuters, this area is quite popular for those who seek an out-of-the-way location, while being close to all that Philadelphia has to offer.

Willistown residents enjoy plenty of open spaces, luscious lawns, and fantastic houses, but they also have access to several neighborhood parks and open space/preservations, including:

  • Duffryn Trial Corridor
  • Mill Park
  • Serpentine Preserve
  • Okehocking Preserve
  • Line Road Field
  • Sugartown Preserve and Garden

Also, easy access to US-30 as well as Route 202 makes trips to regional attractions convenient for residents.

Quality Education Awaits Your Children

Willistown Township is served by the Great Valley School District. There are several private schools that serve the area as well, including Malvern Preparatory School, Villa Maria Academy High School, and St. Patrick’s School.
