2. About The Main Line – The Main Line is an unofficial historical and socio-cultural region of suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, comprising a collection of affluent towns built along the old Main Line of the Pennsylvania Railroad which ran northwest from downtown Philadelphia parallel to Lancaster Avenue (US Route 30).
The railroad helped create the Main Line towns in the 19th century. They became home to sprawling country estates belonging to Philadelphia’s wealthiest families, and over the decades became a bastion of “old money”. Today, the Main Line includes some of the wealthiest towns in the country, including Lower Merion Township, Radnor Township, Gladwyne and Villanova. The region also contains the King of Prussia Mall, the second-largest mall in the country.
