History and Socioeconomics

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Edgmont Township, otherwise known by the post office name of Edgemont (19028) is a semi-rural suburban area in Western Delaware County. It was one of the first townships in Pennsylvania, founded in the late 1680s. Today, Edgmont is home to a rather wide socioeconomic range. Along the rural area along Valley Road are many high-income neighborhoods such as Allee, Okehocking Hills, and Fiveormore. On Delchester Road, is the rather posh new neighborhood known as Somerhill. On the major north-south thoroughfare through Edgmont, Providence Road, several upscale single family homes on large lots predominate as well as other high-income neighborhoods such as Springton Chase and Runnymeade Farms. There is also a retirement home known as White Horse Village. Within Edgmont lies a very tiny village that is not incorporated known as Gradyville (19039). It consists mainly of a post office, a gas station, a flower shop, an antique shop, one or two houses, and an English-language Orthodox church. Though Edgmont has its own post office as mentioned previously, most of the area is served by the Newtown Square post office (19073) or the Media post office (19063) or the Glen Mills post office as it delivers mail directly to residences.
