Wynnewood is a suburban community west of Philadelphia, that straddles Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County and Haverford Township, Delaware County. It was named in 1691 for Dr. Thomas Wynne, William Penn’s physician and the first Speaker of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Lower Merion Township is the fifth-most-affluent township in the United States. Wynnewood is one of many neighborhoods on the historic Pennsylvania Main Line, and is the home of institutions such as Lankenau Hospital, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, and Friends’ Central School.
Wynnewood itself is mostly residential, with its shopping in various clusters. The largest shopping center in Wynnewood is the Wynnewood Shopping Center (housing an Old Navy, Bed Bath and Beyond, Mad Mex, DSW Designer Show Warehouse and Giant, along with several eateries and smaller stores). Other shopping venues in the suburb include Wynnewood Square and The Whole Foods Shopping Center both on East Lancaster Avenue. As Wynnewood is primarily a residential community, its residents visit other districts of the Main Line, such as Ardmore or Narberth, for shopping. Along with its tree-shaded streets and mature old stone homes, Wynnewood has also been known historically for its car dealerships, which line Lancaster Avenue from South Wynnewood to Argyle Road.
Wynnewood is located along Lancaster Avenue (U.S. Route 30) and is also easily accessible from nearby Interstate Routes 76 and 476 the “Blue Route”, traveling south and north between Chester and Interstate 95 in the south and Plymouth Meeting, Germantown, and the east-west Pennsylvania Turnpike in the north.
Much of Wynnewood’s public school children attend the Merion, Penn Wynne or Penn Valley elementary schools, part of Lower Merion School District headquartered in nearby Ardmore; Bala Cynwyd Middle School; and have a choice between Lower Merion High School and Harriton High School. Other schools, private and parochial, abound in this old and affluent residential district, including all-boys The Haverford School, all-girls Baldwin and Agnes Irwin schools, coeducational Friends Central School—actually within the Wynnewood postal district. Saint Joseph’s University is close by with parts of its campus in Merion, Bala Cynwyd and West Philadelphia.
