Although Chestnut Hill is part of Philadelphia, it’s adjacent to Montgomery County. To the west is Fairmount Park. Two rail lines give access to the area, as well as the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the Blue Route and the Schuylkill Expressway. Population is in the neighborhood of thirty thousand. During the Revolutionary War, Chestnut Hill was a popular summer resort because of its high elevation. It became part of the City of Philadelphia in 1854 when the county and city became one.

Chestnut Hill’s main street is home to a myriad of unique shops and restaurants which draw visitors from all over the area. There is a local newspaper and Stagecrafters, a local theatre group. Chestnut Hill is on the National Historic Register.

Chestnut Hill is noted for its 18th and 19th architecture, old farmhouses and older row homes. There is a distinct feel of small town living pervading its streets. Pastorius Park and the Wissahickon Valley add variety to the many amenities of the town.
