Hardwood Flooring Services in Gladwyne, PA

Gladwyne History

Gladwyne, PA, was known as Merion Square until 1891. It is part of a cluster of towns to the west of Philadelphia known as the Main Line. Early on the town preserved open space and to this day this has allowed it to retain its rural charm. Banker James Crosby Brown built a 185-acre estate in Gladwyne. The estate was later divided into lots of three to 17 acres. This, along with the preserved open space, set precedents in Gladwyne that have limited the sub-division and over-development that some other towns in the area have experienced.

When I-76 (the Schuylkill Expressway) was built in the 1960s it made Gladwyne even more desirable since it was close to the highway, and also close to King of Prussia, which was quickly becoming a business hub.
