What Is The Main Line?

The Main Line is a group of suburbs in the Philadelphia metro area located west of the city in Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester Counties. These suburbs are called the Main Line because they sprang up along the route of the historic Pennsylvania Railroad, which connected the towns. Residents of Main Line towns live a very high quality of life, as these are some of the wealthiest communities in the country. Many of the sprawling mansions and large homes that historically characterized the Main Line region still exist today, and are a lovely part of the Main Line landscape.
