Havertown is a residential suburban unincorporated community in Haverford Township, Delaware County, PA, located 9 miles west of the venter of Philadelphia, PA. Havertown’s rich history began with Haverford Township’s founding by Welsh Quakers in 1681 on land purchased by William Penn. The town is home to many historic sites, such as the Grange Estate, a mansion that entertained the Revolutionary War figures George Washington and General Lafayette. Nitre Hall, also located within the town’s borders, supplied the United States with over 800,000 pounds of gunpowder during the War of 1812.
Havertown is also known for its large Irish-American population. Many Irish-Americans still live there today. According to the 2000 US Census, Haverford Twp. ranks in the top 60 of census-recognized municipalities nationwide in percentage of the population with Irish ancestry. The neighborhood takes pride in its distinct Irish heritage and is home to many Irish pubs and shops. Many locals still reverentially (and only half-jokingly) refer to Havertown as the “33rd county” (of Ireland). For these reasons, the neighborhood remains a very popular destination for Irish immigrants. Of the 51,560 residents, 11,182 noted “Irish” as their first reported ancestry.
Havertown is also known for being the birthplace of Swell Bubble Gum, which closed its doors in late 2004, and was demolished in 2011. In 2013, the site became the home of the new Haverford Area YMCA.
Parks and Recreation
Havertown is home to over 30 outdoor parks and playing fields. The town also provides other recreation facilities, including the Haverford Township Free Library, and the Haverford Township Skatium, a multi-use ice rink for Havertown residents.

Haverford Music Festival
The concept for the Haverford Music Festival was introduced by the Haverford Township Civic Council (HTCC), a private, non-profit organization that funds historic, environmental, business, and community initiatives in Haverford Township. Inspired by the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Bethlehem Musikfest and other music festivals in the area, the all-day, family-oriented Haverford Music Festival has taken place annually in the Oakmont Business District of Havertown since 2011.
In 2012, the festival attracted more than 15,000 people, who enjoyed over 30 bands on three stages. HTCC benefits from festival proceeds and uses to fund community-based programs within Haverford Township. Proceeds from prior Music Festivals were given to the Haverford Partnership for Economic Development (HPED) for Oakmont Business District Beautification.
The list of notable residents from Havertown, PA is lengthy. The list could include a Grammy Producer in Howard Benson, an MLB umpire in Jerry Crawford to John LeClair, the former Philadelphia Flyer.
