"Since the early 18th century, the area which is now Avondale has been the home of a very proud and industrious people. As our country grew, this region of Southern Chester County quickly became an important link between Philadelphia, Baltimore and the new communities to the west as Avondale became a crossroads town for both turnpikes and railroad. At the time of it's incorporation in 1894, the borough of Avondale had reached the peak of its development with the most prosperous businesses, mills, farms, and stores in the region.
"Today, visitors and residents alike take note of not only the impressive array of Victorian architecture which lines the streets of Avondale, but also the fierce Quaker-based traditions which will dictate that Avondale will continue to thrive with a mix of business, industry, agriculture and residential property as it enters its second century of existence."
