About Upper Darby
Upper Darby is a large, thriving township located less than 3 miles from the heart of Philadelphia. It's home to a very diverse population, welcoming people from more than 100 different ethnic cultures. Most locals commute to Philadelphia for work, within just a few minutes. One of the most notable landmarks in Upper Darby is the Tower Theater, a 1920s theater that's hosted many concerts and recording sessions for well-known musicians including Bruce Springsteen, Phil Collins and Pat Benatar.
The History of Upper Darby
Upper Darby started out as a small part of Darby Township. English and Swedish immigrants settled Darby Township in 1683, but people inhabited the land long before that. The Lenni Lenape natives lived along the Muckinapates Creek for centuries before European settlers arrived.
Lower Swedish Cabin, which is Pennsylvania's oldest building and one of the oldest log cabins in the United States, was built around 1640 by Swedish immigrants. While the population remained sparse for many years to come, the area had mills and farms that provided meat, vegetables and other necessities to those living in Philadelphia.
On August 31, 1736, Upper Darby became incorporated separate from Darby Township for its residents' convenience. In 1830, the growth rate of the township changed dramatically when textile mills moved into the area. Before then, most textiles were made at home to meet the family's needs. However, when old grist-mills were converted to spin yarn, the textile industry began to take off and lasted well into the mid-1900s.
Upper Darby is divided into several residential neighborhoods filled with a mix of rowhouses, turn-of-the-century single family homes and quirky, mid-century buildings. The diversity of the community has enriched the local culture, bringing a number of ethnic businesses and restaurants to the area. In addition, Upper Darby sits less than 3 miles from Philadelphia's city center, making it feel like an extension of the bustling metropolis.
