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
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
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.
