History of Paoli, PA
Paoli, Pennsylvania, is located in Chester County and spans two townships – Tredyffrin and Willistown. The area began with an inn in 1769 run by Joshua Evans. Joshua’s father had bought 500 acres of land in the area from William Penn. The Inn, and later the town, was named after General Pasquale Paoli. The Inn was located near where the Paoli Post Office is located today and is about 20 miles outside of Philadelphia.
The Battle of Paoli took place on September 20, 1777. Five thousand British soldiers attacked a Patriot camp after intercepting plans from General Washington. Undercover of darkness, they successfully surprised the camp. Over 200 Continental Army soldiers were killed or injured at the battle, while the British lost less than 10.
With the Main Line of Public Works and the Pennsylvania Railroad building, Paoli continued to grow and prosper as part of Philadelphia’s Main Line.
