Narberth Real Estate

About Narberth

The borough of Narberth is an incorporated community on Philadelphia's affluent Main Line. While sharing many characteristics of other Main Line towns such as wealth, excellent schools, low crime, upscale shopping and fine eateries, and a stop on the Septa R5 line, Narberth is perhaps one of, if not the most, unique. One of its differentiating traits is that Narberth is considered a walking town. It is referred to as a walking town because all basic amenities are within walking distance in any part of Narberth. This is in part because of a convenient layout and small community size.

Narberth is basically an enclave as no major thoroughfares intrude upon the town. The town is approximately one half of a square mile which is cut in half by the railroad tracks, dividing the community into north and south sides. This charming enclave was incorporated in 1895 has an extremely strong community with its own police department, highway department, community library, volunteer fire department, recreation department with many strong public services. Narberth has remained an independent borough because of a strong community and civic association that keeps it unique while still fitting into the Main Line.

Narberth is entirely surrounded by Lower Merion Township in Montgomery County, with all of its public students attending the renowned Lower Merion School District. Bert Bell who founded the National Football League and was aided by Narberth residents in originating the league is honored in the town by the Bert Bell historic marker. Another point of interest is the Rees-Price house which was built in 1803 and was the home of Edward R. Price, the founder of Elm which in turn became Narberth.
