It has always been easy to map a route through history in Delco (one of the oldest counties in the Commonwealth), but now you can do so from one convenient location. The
Delaware County Historical Society’s map room provides a geographic picture of how this little southeastern corner of Pennsylvania has changed over the last 400 or so years. From the site of where William Penn first landed (spoiler alert: the Delaware River isn’t where it once was) to atlases commissioned by the railroads to lure people to the Main Line, this little room allows visitors to travel an ambitious journey of exploration — much like those first residents centuries ago.
