Bryn Mawr, is renowned for its many excellent private schools and great college and stunning homes. Bryn Mawr straddles two counties and three townships. While more than half of Bryn Mawr lies in the Lower Merion Township, it also spans across portions of Radnor and Haverford townships. Nationally recognized as being the home of Bryn Mawr College and locally known as a very convenient place to live, Bryn Mawr has a population of over 9,000 residents.
The town of Bryn Mawr was born in 1704 when Rowland Ellis, a Welsh tobacco plantation owner, built a large manor house on the current geographic location of the town, calling it Bryn Mawr, meaning high hill. Later named Humphreyville after the Thomas and Humphrey families it belonged to, this small rural community began to grow. In about 1869, the Pennsylvania Railroad established a new community, building a railway track, improving existing streets, opening new roads, planting trees, subdividing properties, and offering land for sale. Gradually, this new community, which once again adopted the name of Bryn Mawr, was transformed from a hamlet to an active, thriving town.
 As beautiful and prestigious estates began to develop, as well as prominent educational facilities such as the Bryn Mawr Public School, the private Shipley and Baldwin School, and the nationally renowned Bryn Mawr College, the town of Bryn Mawr came to be known as a luxurious, exclusive community to live in.
Bryn Mawr is a bustling educational community with prime private schools and both Bryn Mawr College and Bryn Mawr Film Institute. Residents also enjoy beautiful area parks community events. Home to the prestigious Merion Cricket Club and just a sort distance from nearby Merion Golf Club.
