Gladwyne, PA

The historic Guard House Inn is within Gladwyne. The village is also home to the Philadelphia Country Club, Merion Cricket Club, and The Courts, a private tennis club. Because the town was early to preserve space and has received many donations of land, developers have not subdivided the area into more typical suburban developments, so the area retains a mixture of farm, colonial town, and late 19th/early 20th housing uncharacteristic of other Main Line communities.
