St. Davids In-Home Care Services

 

 

St. Davids, spelled appropriately without the apostrophe, is an established segment of Radnor Township in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, the fifth most populous county in the state. Radnor Township has a population of 31, 531.

 

Though the area experienced a population boom in recent years, it remains quiet and residential along the Main Line of Philadelphia, near the Blue Route and Lancaster Avenue.

 

The area sits about 15 miles outside of the city and is accessible through the SEPTA system, being a stop along the Paoli/ Thorndale Line.

 

History

 

St. Davids parish, named for the patron saint of Wales, is situated in this area that adopted its name.

 

The area was settled primarily by Welsh immigrants who took William Penn's promise of religious freedom and vast farming opportunities to heart and flooded the area in 1698.

 

With no other people in the vicinity speaking English, William Penn allowed them to speak Welsh, which contributed to the long-term influx of Welsh people to the area.

 

The St. Davids church was constructed in the 1700s, and for a time, was apt to help Revolutionary soldiers on both sides of the war.

 

In 1880. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, one of the famous American fireside poets, wrote about the adjacent cemetery in a poem entitled, "Behind the Marker."

 

Meticulous caretaking of the notable parish cemetery has continued throughout the area's history, and the parish has grown to a membership of over 3,000, which is the largest in the nation.

Valley Forge National Historical Park - It would be easy to walk the property unaware of its significance, but still appreciative of the tremendous natural beauty of the park. However, knowing that this is the location where the Continental Army spent a grueling winter during the Revolutionary War, gives significant meaning to the visit and paints the hillsides with significance. Visit for a guided tour, have a family picnic, stop at the chapel, or bring the class for a field trip.
