Newtown Square


Established in 1681, Newtown Square was originally planned by William Penn as the first inland town west of Philadelphia. It was laid out as a center square around the intersection of Goshen Road and Newtown Street Road. After World War II the mostly agricultural community grew into a bedroom community and suburb of Philadelphia.
