With a population under 1,000, this small, historic borough was settled by Quaker farmers in 1682. Water mills from that time are still evident with the Old Mill currently used as an event venue. In 1901 Rose Valley was founded as an Arts and Crafts community by architect Will Price, leaving a legacy of impressive architecture, a preserved landscape, and a regional theatre, the Hedgerow Theatre (founded in 1923), as well as an artistic community that includes writers, painters, and architects. The Rose Valley Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010. Borough residents are eligible to join the Rose Valley Folk, a community based social group with frequent activities at the Old Mill. Blue Ribbon Wallingford-Swarthmore School District is renowned for its academics, sports and marching band with a new Wallingford Elementary School. Access to all major routes (I95, 476, Rt1) are nearby, and the Philadelphia International Airport is just twenty minutes away by car. Enjoy easy proximity to downtown Media's galleries shops and restaurants. 14 White Pine Lane..is this your forever home?
