Delco History

Delco History

Named for the Delaware River, Delaware County is one of 67 counties in Pennsylvania. Delco, a fast-growing county located just southwest of the city of Philadelphia, has 49 unique municipalities with a total population of 558,979 (2010 census). The county is home to 11 colleges and universities including Villanova University, Haverford College,  Penn State Brandywine Campus, AND our most renowned and prestigious institution of higher education – DCCC.

Delaware County (Delco) was created on September 26, 1789 from part of Chester County and named for the Delaware River. Its county seat, since 1851, is Media. Chester City, prior to 1851, was the county seat of both Delaware County and, before that, of Chester County.

Socioeconomically, Delaware County runs the gamut from the towns of Chester and Darby to the posh suburban neighborhoods of Radnor and Newtown along the wealthy Main Line to the north. This county is part of the Delaware Valley area and borders Philadelphia.
