Cheltenham In-home Care Services
Cheltenham Township is a vibrant suburb of the exciting and diverse city of Philadelphia. While it was originally one of the smallest areas of property distributed in the land deeds granted by William Penn in 1682, today Cheltenham is densely populated, with 36,793 counted in the 2010 census; 9.6% of the population is over the age of 65.
The township is divided into two districts, La Mott and Wyncote, both of which are on the National Register of Historic Places. Rich culture is a hallmark of both La Mott and Wyncote, which is a wealthy suburban district, notable for its late 18th/early 19th Century architecture.
Cheltenham is accessible along SEPTA’s Fox Chase Regional Rail Line, on Regional Rail Line 2.
Cheltenham Township was originally founded in 1682 as part of Philadelphia County. When Montgomery County was created on September 10, 1784, William Penn deeded land grants for the 4, 070-acre property to two Englishmen, Tobias Leech and Richard Wall, who have since been heralded the founding fathers of Cheltenham Township.
Richard Wall’s home, which was the oldest home in continuous residence in Cheltenham until 1978, is still standing at the entrance of today’s Wall Park, where visitors are invited to tour the property and enjoy the historic atmosphere.
Another notable individual, who is highly regarded in Cheltenham’s history, is Humphrey Morrey. Mr. Morrey is famous for his service as the first mayor of Philadelphia, from 1691 to 1701. When he passed away, his only surviving son, Richard Morrey, inherited this property and was among the very first men in American history to free his slaves and distribute his property to them.
